Dr Vince Knight attends Voice Of The Future 2014
Dr Vince Knight was selected to represent the Council of Mathematical Sciences at Voice of The Future 2014, where he was able to table a question to Sir Mark Walport FRS FMedSci, Government Chief Scientific Adviser. The School would like to take this time to congratulate both on these outstanding achievements.
Dr Angela Mihai has been elected Secretary & Treasurer of the UK & Republic of Ireland Section of SIAM (SIAM-UKIE) for the period April 1, 2014 - March 31, 2016. In her election statement she wrote "As a SIAM-UKIE officer, I would work towards promoting the SIAM-UKIE Section as a forum for the exchange of scientific ideas between Universities and between University members and Industry or other Research Institutions by encouraging more current and potential SIAM members from different areas of applied, industrial, and engineering mathematics to participate in the national SIAM events, such as the SIAM-UKIE Annual Meeting, the SIAM National Student Chapter Conference, and other events organised by the SIAM Student Chapters... I would also support the President and the Vice-President in their continuous effort to grow the number of SIAM-UKIE members, as this could generate more opportunities for young researchers, and to enhance even more the international profile of the national section through further interactions with the SIAM international community. I sincerely believe that the 20th Anniversary of SIAM-UKIE, in 2016, could be a celebration of many such achievements.''
