Concentrating on Concentrations

Filip Rindler has been awarded a £1.75m ERC Consolidator Grant to investigate concentration phenomena and singularities in Mathematical Analysis with applications to Material Science and Solid Mechanics. Read more about his research in this article.

Spaces of Graphs

Karen Vogtmann, a geometric group theorist, attended a conference in perturbative quantum field theory in 2019 where she met physicist Michael Borinsky. Together they began a collaboration that has yielded solutions to seemingly intractable problems about spaces of graphs.

Mathematics of Metal Forming

Ed Brambley has been awarded a UKRI Future Leaders Fellowship to investigate how mathematics might make metal forming cleaner and greener.

Rogue Waves

Tobias Grafke has been developing new mathematical descriptions of rogue waves by using the power of probability theory to quantitatively predict the unlikely.

SBIDER Podcast Hub

Ed Hill and Laura Guzmán Rincón received a RAMP Outreach Innovation Award to created a platform for informing the public and wider scientific community of research taking place at the Zeeman Institute for Systems Biology & Infectious Disease Epidemiology Research (SBIDER).

Inna Capdeboscq

Classification of Finite Simple Groups

Inna Capdeboscq is participating in a monumental effort by a small group of mathematicians to produce a new proof -- the Generation-2 proof – of the Classification of Finite Simple Groups.

The URSS experience

The Undergraduate Research Support Scheme (URSS) enables Warwick undergraduate students to carry out an interdisciplinary summer research or public engagement project. Paul Lezeau describes his experience.

Buckled Lands

Thomasina Ball was awarded a 2022 Leverhulme Trust Fellowship to study Buckling instabilities in geophysical flows.

Liquid Films

Radu Cimpeanu and Susana Gomes study the mathematics of water flowing down windscreens and many technological applications of thin liquids.


Chunyi Li has been awarded a Whitehead Prize by the London Mathematics Society for his deep contributions to a wide range of questions in algebraic geometry.
