Communities in time-dependent networks


My name is Marya Bazzi and I recently finished my PhD in applied mathematics at the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics. The main focus of my thesis is cluster (or community) detection in time-dependent networks. But before going into that, a little bit of context: I started my studies with an undergraduate degree […]

How mathematics can help to solve the current water crisis


Population growth, drought and contamination mean that water quality and quantity concerns are one of the largest environmental issues facing the world today. As a result, the race to find new and effective strategies for the production of clean water is now more important than ever. Here in Oxford we have been working with Pall […]

Mathematics in the glass industry


Peter Howell has been working in Oxford on extensional thin layer flows with application to the glass industry for the last 20 years. He first studied the evolution of thin sheets and jets of viscous fluid by taking a mathematical limit where the aspect ratio (the ratio of the thickness to the length or width) is […]

Doctorate in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling – InFoMM CDT


The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Industrially Focused Mathematical Modelling (InFoMM), is based at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxford. This unique 4 year programme facilitates the training of doctoral students in real world mathematical problems. Roxana Feier writes about her experiences so far: “I am a second year doctoral student in […]

PhD studentships in Statistical Applied Mathematics at the University of Bath, UK

Applications for 4-year, fully-funded, PhD studentships at the interface between applied mathematics, stochastic modelling, statistics, and computation – beginning in Autumnn 2016 – are currently open! The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistical Applied Mathematics (SAMBa) has a cohort of students whose thesis topics range from industrially-motivated problems to more abstract problems, using deterministic, […]

OCIAM – Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics


OCIAM (Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics) was born in 1989 when a small group of practical applied mathematicians moved from the Mathematical Institute in Oxford into a separate building across the road. From a beginning of 6 faculty members with Alan Tayler as its first director and a handful of students OCIAM has […]

The Sound of Your Emotions


DTU Compute postdoc Jens Madsen is researching algorithms to pick from a music library music to match an emotion described by a user. Music services like Spotify, Apple Music and Wimp provide access to millions of songs, but picking out just a few suitable for a particular mood is a daunting task for `wetware’, the […]

The Sensible DTU Project


My name is David Kofoed Wind and I am a PhD-student in the Cognitive Systems Section at DTU Compute. My PhD-project relates around machine learning and data science, covering a broad set of topics. Currently I am working on three different projects: Analysis of data from the , peer grading of students in university courses […]

115th European Study Group with Industry in Barcelona

We are pleased to announce that the 115th European Study Group with Industry (ESGI) will be held at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Barcelona on the 25th-29th January 2016. ESGIs are week-long problem solving workshops which provide a unique opportunity for industrial scientists to work alongside academic mathematicians on problems of direct industrial relevance. The ESGIs first started […]
