5 EPSRC summer bursaries awarded in mathematics

Five undergraduate students in mathematics have been awarded EPSRC summer research bursaries this year.  The award for each student is £2500 and it funds the student to work on a research topic with a member of staff for 10 weeks.  Hannah Smith will be working with Bin Cheng on vortex dynamics on a rotating sphere.  Sean Cleator will be working with Gianne Derks and Matt Turner on the mathematical modelling of iron uptake in the human digestive system.  James Goodwin will be working with Alessandro Torrielli on integrable systems and quantum mechanics.  Sarah Grimshaw will be working with Cesare Tronci on geometric mechanics of a pendulum in a magnetic field.  Nadia Shepherd will be working with Tom Bridges on the theory of water waves.
