Mathematrix is a student-led group in the Mathematical Institute where postgraduates, postdocs and staff discuss and explore topics related to challenges in academic life and being a minority in the maths community. Mathematrix hosts weekly discussions during term-time. The events are relaxed and informal, and people may come and go as they please.
To join us, please subscribe to our mailing list by sending a blank email to mathematrix-discuss-subscribe at maths.ox.ac.uk. We would be very happy to receive your suggestions.
