Robin Thompson

Further Information: 

Models. They are dominating our Lockdown lives. But what is a mathematical model? We hear a lot about the end result, but how is it put together? What are the assumptions? And how accurate can they be?

In our first online only lecture Robin Thompson, Research Fellow in Mathematical Epidemiology in Oxford, will explain. Robin is working on the ongoing modelling of Covid-19 and has made many and varied media appearances in the past few weeks. We are happy to take questions after the lecture.

Philip Maini

Further Information: 

Mathematical modelling lives a varied life. It links the grey squirrel invasion in the UK to the analysis of how tumour cells invade the body; Alan Turing's model for pattern formation gives insight into animal coat markings and Premier League

Football Shirts; and models for Excitability have been used to model the life cycle of the cellular slime mold and heart attacks.

Philip Maini will reveal all in our latest Oxford Mathematics Public Lecture.

Philip Maini is Professor of Mathematical Biology in the University of Oxford.
