About the lecturers:
Peter Keevash works in the Pure Mathematics group at Queen Mary. His research is in extremal combinatorics, an elegant branch of pure mathematics with many practical applications. His interests include graph theory, hypergraphs / set systems, algebraic and probabilistic methods in combinatorics, random structures, combinatorial optimisation and combinatorial number theory.
David Tsiklauri works in the Astronomy Unit at Queen Mary. He has a research programme concerned with the investigation of: solar coronal heating problems; various wave modes in inhomogeneous space plasmas and magnetic reconnection; (in the solar corona and solar wind); solar flares; large scale numerical simulations; theoretical modeling of radio emission from solar flare electrons, and interpretation of LOFAR radio data; analytical calculations.
