Alumni Event at the Royal Society, London 28 June 2017
We are hosting a prestigious Alumni Event at the Royal Society, 6-9 Carlton House Terrace, London SW1Y 5AG on 28 June 2017 from 6.30pm. This will be a drinks, canape and networking event together with a few interesting mathematical presentations.
All past Mathematics graduates are welcome to contact us about attending this exciting event to be held at the Royal Society. There will be a canape and drinks reception and an opportunity to network and mingle with fellow graduates from Mathematics.
A group of experienced academic staff from our School (including Head of School Professor Peter Duck) will be “on the floor” to join conversation and share memories.
Along with this dialogue, two exciting short talks are planned to complement the evening. Dr Charles Walkden, Reader and Director of Teaching and Learning, will be giving a presentation on “what's normal about numbers?”. He is renowned for engaging crowds and giving interactive and fun demonstrations. Professor Bill Lionheart will be delivering a presentation on his cutting edge research into landmines and has recently travelled to Malaysia and Cambodia to further this worthwhile research. His talk is entitled " "Mathematics in the Minefield".
Mathematics graduates from Victoria University of Manchester, UMIST and The University of Manchester are most welcome to join us and it would be a pleasure to meet you again and catch-up since you studied here.
