Three students undertaking summer research projects in pure mathematics

Three students are undertaking summer research projects in geometry and group theory. Lewis Napper, an undergraduate at Surrey, is undertaking a project with James Grant on “Curvature and low-regularity geometry“.  The project is funded by the London Mathematical Society. Sebastian Foulger, a student at Charters School in Sunningdale, is undertaking a summer project with David […]

Two undergraduate summer research projects in mathematical biology

Two undergraduate students in mathematics are undertaking summer research projects in mathematical biology. Reuban Harman-Mitchell is working with Anne Skeldon on “Mathematical modelling of REM/NREM sleep“.  This project is funded by an EPSRC undergraduate vacation internship, and is in collaboration with Prof Derk-Jan Dijk (SSRC, Surrey) and Gianne Derks. Cameron Cook is working with Carina […]
