Women in Maths

At the beginning of November our MD, Lynsey, was invited to attend the annual Women in Maths event at the University of Bristol. This event is for current undergraduate students who are interested in discovering where further study in maths could take them and aims to encourage female mathematics students to continue their studies to PhD level.

Lynsey was pleased to be invited to give a presentation on her current role and her career to date following her PhD. The afternoon session where Lynsey spoke consisted of three speakers who had all undertaken a PhD in Mathematics or Statistics, but had chosen different career paths. The other speakers had studied Pure and Applied Maths and one was now a Lecturer at the University and the other an Analyst at GCHQ.

“I was really pleased to be asked to present at this event as I’m always keen to promote and inspire mathematics and statistics, particularly to young females early in their career,” said Lynsey. “It was a fantastically organised event with a great attendance. I particularly enjoyed listening to the other speakers to hear about the different interesting and vibrant careers that they had embarked on following their PhDs. It’s clear just how wide and varied the opportunities are after studying mathematics and statistics!”
