We continue our new series of talks from PhD alumni with talks from Dr Hari Sriskantha (UoE 2014), and Dr Gissell Estrada-Rodriguez (MIGSAA 2019). Hari, whose PhD research focussed on computational astrophysics, is now a software architect for the London-based software consultancy Theodo, having previously worked for a number of companies in publishing and media. Gissell is now a postdoctoral research fellow in Paris and was recently awarded a Fondation Sciences Mathematiques de Paris fellowship to continue her research at Sorbonne University for 2020-2021. Her research is focussed on the use of partial differential equations for biological and robotics systems.
An afternoon of talks from current PhD students at Edinburgh and Heriot-Watt to give an idea of research in mathematics. The event will be of interest to those interested in pursuing a PhD in the future, but also to anyone who is curious about what goes on in the department outside of teaching. The event could also provide a suggestion of possible areas for a research project for final year students.
