Callum Ilkiw

Callum graduated with an MSc in Mathematics of Systems in 2021.

Areas of Expertise/Experience

My academic knowledge in mathematics is very broad, with areas from pure and applied mathematics.

  • Combinatorial Game Theory
    • Master's Project 2020 "A Concise and Welcoming Introduction to Combinatorial Game Theory". This project gathered all the main ideas of the field, presented them in a welcoming structure and presented the reader with some specific (and new) examples of these methods at work. Additionally, the paper finishes by presenting the reader with the most important unsolved problems in the field.
    • Largely inspired by the works of John H. Conway.
    • Supervised by Dr David Bedford
  • Hydrodynamic Stability Theory
    • Knowledge of: Propagation properties of unstable waves in sheer layers, theorem proofs for inviscid flows and piece-wise linear models.
  • Linear Algebra
  • Combinatorial designs
  • Field, Group, Graph and Galois Theory
  • Number Theory and Cryptography
  • Population Dynamics
  • Maths education and communication

Areas of Interest

  • Applied Game Theory
    • Social models that study social behaviour from a mathematical viewpoint.
  • Population Dynamics
    • Epidemiology and Ecology
  • Maths education and communication
    • Improving mathematical education and finding ways of communicating maths to the general public.

Other Notes

  • Current Roles/Projects
    • Chair of MathSys SSLC
    • Associate Member of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
  • Experience in public speaking
    • Years of drama and debating experience
  • Leadership Experience
