Inaugural Lectures Series

The Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences launched its Inaugural Lectures series in November 2014. The series will feature professors from across all departments, who will deliver a one hour lecture relating to their area of research and expertise. The lectures will give audiences an insight into the cutting edge research and teaching innovation taking place within the Faculty.


Each lecture will conclude with a reception, providing attendees with the opportunity to discuss the topics further with colleagues and peers.
