A day of talks and workshops celebrating the opportunities open to women in maths - supported by the London Mathematical Society.
This free event in March 2019 was open to all undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as early-career researchers. We welcomed a range of speakers from across academia and industry. You can find out more about the event below.

Elaine Chew is Professor of Digital Media in the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London. She is a mathematical scientist, leading research on the mathematical representation and computational analysis of temporal and frequency structures in music and arrhythmia sequences. Elaine is also a concert pianist, creating cross-cutting interdisciplinary performance events.
Ivana Gudelj is Professor of Evolutionary Systems Biology at the University of Exeter. Her research examines the relationship between maths and microbes, utilising mathematical and experimental approaches to understand competition, cooperation and coevolution amongst microorganisms.
Heather Harrington is a Royal Society University Research Fellow Associate Professor at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford. Her research focuses on the problem of reconciling models and data by extracting information about the structure of models and the shape of data. Heather integrates techniques from a variety of disciplines such as computational algebraic geometry and topology, statistics, optimization, network theory, and dynamical systems. She was recently awarded the LMS Whitehead Prize.
Dr Tereza Neocleous is a Lecturer in Statistics at the University of Glasgow. Her research interests include developing flexible statistical models with applications in forensic chemistry, medicine, speech and the environment. Tereza has served as a committee member of the Royal Statistical Society’s Section on Statistics and the Law and is actively involved in training forensic scientists and law professionals in the use of statistics.
Dr Marie-Therese Wolfram is Associate Professor at the University of Warwick. Her research interests include Partial differential equations, mathematical modelling in socio-economic applications and the life sciences, and numerical analysis.
We held a panel discussion featuring Queen Mary Maths alumni now working in technology, financial services and consulting roles.
