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

About this event

Our PiWORKS speaker for May is Dr. Heather Battey. Dr. Battey obtained her PhD at the University of Cambridge, and is currently a Lecturer in the Department of Mathematics at Imperial College London. She works primarily on statistical theory, and is on the research board of the Institute of Digital Molecular Design and Fabrication at Imperial.

Title: Statistical theory and its role in scientific inference

Abstract: I will outline some history of statistics and its bearing on current trends, highlighting key conceptual issues that remain of high relevance. A brief indication of my research in statistical theory will follow.

Sign up now to receive the Zoom details! The target audience for the talks are 3rd/4th 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.

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 women 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 women and non-binary researchers and mathematics students.

The Piscopia Initiative (https://piscopia.co.uk) is a student-led outreach scheme that aims to encourage women and non-binary students to pursue a PhD.
