PhD scholarship student speaks at Maths conferenceWednesday 24 May 2017
Vice-Chancellor’s PhD Scholarship student Shreya Sehgal recently 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. Many mathematicians attended this conference from around the world, taking part in plenary talks, presentations and poster sessions.
Shreya presented part of the work she is doing on mathematical analysis of quasi-periodic spiral and scroll waves, with her talk entitled A numerical bifurcation analysis of spiral waves. Her attendance at the conference was partly funded by a scholarship from BAMC.
Shreya said: "As a PhD student, it is essential for the development towards becoming a researcher that one attends such events and presents their work to other mathematicians and scientists. Talking and interacting with people was a great experience and helps in establishing personal professional credibility and networking."
Lecturers in Mathematics Dr Andrew Foulkes and Dr Anna Kirpichnikova, and Associate Professor in Computer Science Dr David Reid supervised Shreya’s research.
