Oxford Mathematician Chris Breward has been appointed as the inaugural Scientific Director of the UK’s new Knowledge Exchange Hub for Mathematical Sciences (KE Hub).

Chris has a long history of knowledge-exchange-rich research, and has used mathematics to address outstanding challenges with over 40 different business groups and companies. Amongst many other outcomes, his research has been used for applications as diverse as making “ultrathin” glass sheets viable, and enhancing the operation of sulphur-dioxide-removing filters. Since 2014, he has been the co-Director of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling in Oxford Mathematics.

The KE Hub is an initiative launched following the Bond Review and the Connected Centres Network consultation and is funded by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) through the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences. Through a series of linked projects the KE Hub aims to amplify the voice of practitioners and end-users in the mathematical community, increase mobility, create capacity, develop skills, share good practice for low-risk, high-reward entry points in KE, and broker connections.
