Mathematics graduates from 2020 and 2021.

14 July 2022

Congratulations to Mathematics students who graduated this week, in some cases after waiting for two years. Graduation ceremonies were held for graduates from 2020 and 2021, as well as this year's finalists. In the latter ceremony, an Honorary Fellowship was conferred on Jonathan Whelan, a former Mathematics student now working in IT. Recordings of the ceremonies will be available for a limited time on the university webpages.

Following the 2022 ceremony it was a pleasure to award prizes to a number of graduating students for exceptional performance in Mathematics.

Pennington Prizes for Pure Mathematics, in memory of Prof. Barry Pennington, Head of Pure Mathematics 1961-1968, were awarded to Christian Chelland, Llio Davies and Samuel Grundy-Tenn for outstanding performance in Pure Mathematics. 

The O.L. Davies Prize for Statistics, in memory of Prof. Owen Davies, Head of Statistics 1968-1975, was awarded to Charlotte Slaytor for the best performance in Statistics.

A Colin Easthope Award for outstanding performance in Mathematics, in memory of Dr Colin Easthope, Senior Lecturer in Mathematics, 1963-1975, was awarded to Katie Taylor.

A T.V. Davies Prize for Applied Mathematics, in memory of Prof. T.V. Davies, Head of Applied Mathematics 1958-1967, was awarded to Holly Blyth for excellent performance in Applied Mathematics.

The Clive Pollard Prize for Mathematics, named for a former student who graduated in Pure Mathematics in 1972, was awarded to Hywel Normington for his part 2 performance in Mathematics

Christian Chelland and Samuel Grundy-Tenn also receive prizes from the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) for the best overall performance.

Prizes have also been awarded to non-finalists; we will congratulate these students in person when they return in September.
