  • The second annual CRT symposium is taking place (online) on February 3 and 4. The symposium was due to take place in-person in September. Due to the shift online there may still be some places available for late registrations at
  • Martin Kerin has a new PhD student, Badriah Safarji, who will be studying differential geometry
  • Martin Kerin had a paper, written together with Jason DeVito (University of Tennessee) and Fernando Galaz García (Durham University), accepted by the Indiana University Mathematics Journal. [Due to the backlog at the journal, it probably won't appear in print for some time.]
  • The Irish Geometry Seminar will resume on 1 February [new webpage at]
  • Aaron Golden has been awarded 13 nights in late February/early March on the 1.8m Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope at the Mount Graham International Observatory in Arizona to observe the nearby young triple brown dwarf system VHS J125601.92–125723.9, and in particular characterise the meteorological conditions of the exoplanet analogue VHS 1256–1257 b, scheduled to be observed by the James Webb Space Telescope in May of this year.
  • Lydia King (PhD candidate in the CRT Genomics Data Science) - along with Simone, Emma and Aaron - had her second first-author paper 'GNOSIS: an R Shiny app supporting cancer genomics survival analysis with cBioPortal' published in HRB Open Research.
  • Lydia is presenting a poster “Assessing the Role of Genomics Data in Stratifying Patients within Predictive Models for Breast Cancer Survival Outcome” at the annual CRT conference (Systems Genomics Summit) on the 4th of Feb.  
  • Prof. Patrick Farrell (Oriel College Oxford) a graduate of about 13 years ago, was a winner of an LMS (London Math. Soc.) Junior Whitehead Prize, along with 9 others.
