The Piscopia Initiative is hosting a monthly seminar series featuring female and non-binary mathematics researchers from UK universities.

About this Event

Our first PiWORKS speaker is Professor Maggie Chen from Cardiff University. This event is jointly hosted with Cardiff’s Women In Math Society - find them on Twitter @WiMCardiff.

Sign up now to receive the Zoom details! The target audience for the talks are final year undergraduate and MSc students, but PhD students or academic staff are very welcome to attend. After the talk we will divide those who are interested into break-out rooms to allow for informal networking.

Abstract for the talk by Professor Maggie Chen: "I am, by training, a financial economist specialized in quantitative methods. I am interested in theory-underpinned finance research that focuses on real problems from the financial market and industry. Currently, I have established research groups to comprehensively study Hawkes processes and aim to apply them to various real problems, especially in new problems related to FinTech. My ultimate goal is to establish robust modeling frameworks that are directly applicable by practitioners and regulators."

The aim of our monthly PiWORKS (Piscopia Initiative – Women and Other Researchers Keynote Series) seminar is threefold; we want to

1. Showcase the work of female and non-binary mathematics researchers.

2. Provide a taste of different areas of mathematics research to undergraduate and MSc students.

3. Build an UK-wide community of female and non-binary researchers and mathematics students.

The Piscopia Initiative ( is a student-led outreach scheme that aims to encourage women and non-binary students to pursue a PhD. Join our mailing list to stay updated on all our events:
