The prize is intended to recognise an excellent thesis that goes beyond the level normally expected for the award of a research degree at Oxford, making a significant contribution to the field of study.

Giulia Celora for her numerous significant and substantial contributions to model development and investigation for cyclic hypoxia, in particular including data-driven mechanistic mathematical modelling grounded in Bayesian inference complementing experimental work and leading to insights that would not have been possible otherwise.

Satoshi Hayakawa, for significant and novel contributions including ingenious and beautiful proofs for nontrivial results motivated by important problems, and presenting a first generally applicable algorithm for kernel quadrature with convex weights and fast (spectral) convergence, with respect to the decay of the spectrum of the kernel function.

Jared Duker Lichtman, for his groundbreaking contributions, originality, and technical strength, resolving the Erdős primitive set conjecture; studying problems of primes in arithmetic progressions to large moduli; and, with Joni Teräväinen, on the Hardy–Littlewood–Chowla conjecture on average.

The winners will be receiving equal shares of the £1,000 prize.
