The Department of Mathematics and Statistics invite you to attend this event celebrating Women of Mathematics!

The evening will begin with a public lecture by Dr Karen Lamb, a biostatistician and researcher, followed by the opening of the exhibition, “Women in Mathematics: A Gallery of Portraits.”

The Women of Mathematics exhibition is part of a travelling exhibition that started in Europe and highlights the work of a number of leading female mathematicians. It stems from the observation that nowadays, women still find it difficult to embrace a career in the mathematical academic world and the disparity between the proportion of men and that of women among professional mathematicians is still shamefully large. The exhibition offers a glimpse into the world of mathematics through photographs (by Noel Tovia Matoff) and excerpts of interviews (by Sylvie Paycha and Sara Azzali) of thirteen women mathematicians throughout Europe. More about this project.

Dr Karen Lamb is a biostatistician and researcher. She is passionate about statistical communication and gets a real buzz out of helping researchers in other disciplines use statistics to answer research questions. Karen finds the process of making non-mathematicians comfortable with mathematics to be both challenging and hugely rewarding. As a result, the focus of her research has been as diverse as the people she has been fortunate enough to work with, including doctors, psychologists, epidemiologists, social scientists, biologists and many more!

Drinks and a light supper will follow the public lecture and exhibition opening Please RSVP for catering purposes. Click here to RSVP and find out more about the public lecture and exhibition.
