Funding Success for Ian Roberts and Alicia Gill for a Research Students Conference
Ian Roberts and Alicia Gill, PhD students in the Centre for Doctoral Training in Mathematics and Statistics, have received funding from the London Mathematical Society (£2,500) and the Heilbronn Institute (£2,500) for support towards a three-day Research Students’ Conference in Population Genetics which will be held from 29th June to 1st July 2022 at the University.
Ian says: "The essay was based on the question "'What did the perfect day look like in the different stages of the pandemic? What does it mean for future productivity at work?" My response discussed the interconnectedness of work productivity with other productivities in our lives, both our own and of those around us." The essay can be viewed here.
Congratulations to Marta Catalano who has been announced as one of the
inaugural winners of the Blackwell-Rosenbluth Award, an award of the
International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA) for junior researchers in
Bayesian statistics. In addition to Marta, both of the other winners in the
Europe/Africa/Asia/Oceania section have a Warwick connection. Dootika Vats
held an NSF fellowship at Warwick in 2017-19 and Sam Livingstone's
postdoctoral position at Bristol was part of the i-like programme, led by
Warwick. Congratulations all.
