Grants

ISSF Glasgow Polyomics (Wellcome Trust) Public Engagement Bursary, June 2016

#StreetMaths — interplay between street theatre and mathematics. Taking mathematics outreach to the street. Mathematical busking, usually taking place in public spaces to a varied audience, seeks to surprise and engage passers-by with routines ingrained with mathematical themes reaching audiences not usually exposed to mathematics through traditional channels.

London Mathematical Society Undergraduate Research Bursary, Summer 2016
