This year, our department will be hosting fellow PhD student in Maths or Statistics from other UK universities once a month, to talk about their research. These talks will take place alongside our usual Thursday seminars at 1pm. This is a great opportunity to hear about work going on outside of Reading, so definitely not to be missed! Check the website here for the schedule.

This activity has been kindly sponsored by the QJMAM Fund for Applied Mathematics ( and the Department of Mathematics and Statistics. Thank you to our own vice-president, Giulia, for organising this!
