David Bate and Marie-Therese Wolfram win LMS Whitehead Prizes

Congratulations to two Warwick mathematicians who have each won LMS Whitehead Prizes!

David BateLink opens in a new window for his deep and fundamental contributions to the development of Geometric Measure Theory in the metric setting, including the characterisations of rectifiability in terms of projections and in terms of tangent planes.

Marie-Therese WolframLink opens in a new window for her groundbreaking contributions to applied partial differential equations, mathematical modelling in socio-economic applications and the life sciences, and numerical analysis of partial differential equations.

Weldon Prize awarded to SPI-M-O and Zeeman modellers

This year’s Weldon Prize has been awarded to the SPI-M-O group (including members of the Warwick Zeeman InstituteLink opens in a new windowLink opens in a new window) in recognition for their work during the COVID-19 pandemic. The awards committee said "Under great pressure to deliver results quickly, and under immense public scrutiny, SPI-M-O both built on existing science and developed new epidemiological and statistical techniques to understand the spread of the virus and how it might be controlled. The importance of good and timely disease modelling for policymakers has never been as clear."

The Warwick team (including Keeling, Dyson, Tildesley, Thompson, Hill, Davis, Moore, Guzman-Rincon, Leng and others) has made multiple contributions to understanding and predicting the COVID-19 pandemic during 2020-2022, generating results for both SPI-M-O/SAGE and JCVI. This award reflects this joint effort. Congratulations to all involved!
