PhD opportunities – University of Bath

There are two opportunities for fully funded PhD research at the University of Bath, Department of Mathematics. Both PhDs will be in collaboration with Syngenta and will start in October 2017. “Modern statistical techniques for assessing and predicting herbicide performance” led by Vangelis Evangelou  “Mathematical modelling for safe, yet effective, pesticide development and usage” led by Jane Whitein collaboration […]

Bath’s Institute for Mathematical Innovation: model evolution

How can universities better release the potential that mathematics holds as an ‘underpinning technology’? How can we remove the common obstacles that hinder collaborations with external organisations? How do interdisciplinary projects and collaborations themselves benefit mathematics and statistics? These questions are particularly pertinent at the moment due to the review of knowledge exchange in the […]

Representation of ECMI in AIP2017

In the 9th Applied Inverse Problems Conference (AIP 2017), Hangzhou, China, two presentations were given by Adérito Araújo (vice president) and Leonidas Mindrinos (council member). Both of them were presented in the mini-symposium: ”Inverse problems in quantitative optical and electrical tomography” organized by L. Mindrinos (Computational Science Center, University of Vienna) and K. Knudsen (Technical […]

Students Project: Modeling X-ray tomography using low power lamps

In the occasion of celebrating 100 years of Radon transform, we were asked to model X-ray tomography experiments in a seminar room. The examples took place in the Computational Science Center (CSC) at the University of Vienna, Austria, under the supervision of Otmar Scherzer. The tomographic system was replaced by an overhead projector, modeling the […]
