Vice-Chancellor’s PhD Scholarship student Shreya Sehgal has received a prestigious award from the Society of Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM).
Shreya, who is a final year PhD student in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science, has been given a travel award to attend the 2019 SIAM Conference on Applications of Dynamical Systems.
SIAM is the world's largest professional society dealing with Applied Mathematics, and awards grants each year to high-calibre students, following a rigorous selection process.
Shreya is hoping to present her work on bifurcation analysis in the FitzHugh-Nagumo system at DS19 in Utah. The conference is regarded as the largest conference for dynamical systems and is attended by the key researchers in this area of mathematics.
Last year, Shreya gave a talk at the UK’s largest conference for Applied Mathematics - the British Applied Mathematics Colloquium (BAMC) 2017 - held at the University of Surrey.
