The TMS will be running an event for Shadows and their Mentors.

“The use of mathematical systems for modelling the spread of infectious disease has been around for quite a while now. Mathematical biologists have developed a world of intricate models including things like distribution of household sizes, population flows such as commute to work, airline transportation networks, seasonal and climate factors and what everyone had for breakfast. So we know in glorious detail how a decent pandemic ought to spread, right? Thing is, no one told influenza what it was supposed to do.”

The talk will be followed by a discussion by a panel of current students with experience of working across fields in the Sciences. Questions from the audience are welcomed.

All Shadows welcome

All Colleges and Subjects welcome
