Philip Aston takes part in Mathematics Festival at the Science Museum

cardiomorphAs part of the 150th anniversary celebrations of the London Mathematical Society, there will be a Mathematics Festival at the Science Museum called What’s Your Angle? which will showcase how mathematics relates to everyday life. It is taking place from Wednesday 25th November to Sunday 29th November. Philip Aston is taking part in this Festival with an exhibit demonstrating “cardiomorphs”, that can be derived from a cardiac signal. It will show how a new approach to analysing cardiovascular data is able to extract more information from the data in order to detect the onset of disease earlier. In the setting of critical care and sepsis, this could be life saving. Visitors will be invited to put their finger into a monitor so that they can see their own cardiomorph on the screen. Philip and collaborator Manasi Nandi from King’s College London will be at the Science Museum on Wednesday 25th November 6.45pm-10.00pm, Saturday 28th November 1.30pm-6.00pm and Sunday 29thNovember 10.00am-1.30pm.
