Please note: this event has passed
This event is only open to King's staff and students.
You are invited to a lunch panel discussion and Q&A with early carreer researchers in mathematics. During this event, our panel members are going to discuss opportunities and challenges that a female mathematician has to face nowdays and how these might affect a career path. Information about the Women in Number Theory and Geometry spring retreat and the work of Piscopia local community at King's College London will also be provided.
Panel Chair: Olga Egorova
Panel members: Urte Adomaityte, Isabel Rendell and Stefania Vassiliadis
Bios of Panel members
Olga has been a post-doctoral researcher in the Statistics group, Department of Mathematics, focusing mainly on methodological research in experimental design. Previously she has worked within inter-disciplinary research projects at Southampton University, and as a statistical consultant.
Urtė is a third year PhD student at the Department of Mathematics at King's. Her research interests lie in the intersection between statistical physics, machine learning and statistics. Previously, she obtained a MSc in Applied Maths from Imperial College London and a BA in Maths and Philosophy at King's. She also co-founded the KCL local committee of the Piscopia initiative, whose aim is to create a community of women and non-binary researchers in Maths, and has been organising PhD information events for King’s UG and MSc students in that framework.
Isabel (Izzy) Rendell is a postgraduate researcher in the Department of Mathematics at King’s, as part of the London School of Geometry and Number Theory. She is currently under the supervision of Dr Netan Dogra, working in algebraic number theory and arithmetic geometry. Her research focuses on finding rational points on modular curves, using methods such as Quadratic Chabauty. Izzy is one of four organisers of Women in Number Theory and Geometry (WINGs) 2024, which is the fourth edition of an annual retreat for women and other underrepresented genders in mathematics. Prior to joining King’s, she completed her MSci in Mathematics at University College London (UCL).
Stefania is a PhD student in the Department of Mathematics at King's and a part of the London School of Geometry and Number Theory. She is currently working in birational geometry and foliated birational geometry, under the supervision of Dr Calum Spicer. Stefania is one of the organisers of Women in Number Theory and Geometry (WINGs) 2024, a retreat for Women and underrepresented genders in Mathematics.
