We are thrilled to announce that world-renowned mathematician, Marcus du Sautoy will address members of the IMTA and Irish second level maths students in April 2019.
Marcus du Sautoy is Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford where he holds the prestigious Simonyi Chair for the Public Understanding of Science and is a Fellow of New College.
Du Sautoy has received several awards for his work including the London Mathematical Society’s Berwick Prize for outstanding mathematical research and the Royal Society of London’s Michael Faraday Prize for ‘excellence in communicating science’. He has been awarded an OBE for his services to science and was recently elected a Fellow of the Royal Society.
His mathematical research has covered a great many areas including group theory, number theory and model theory, but he has been equally successful in his promotion of mathematics to the general public. He has published several best-selling, non-academic books and appears regularly on television and radio.
We are privileged to welcome Professor du Sautoy to Dublin On Thursday April 11, 2019 where he will address several second level students in the afternoon. Later in the evening, Marcus will be the key note speaker at the AGM of the Dublin Branch of the IMTA.
A number of teachers have used du Sautoy's series 'The Story of Maths' in their teaching, particularly with transition year students. More info on that can be found here https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00dxjls/episodes/guide. The series is available on Netflix.
More details to follow over the coming weeks, but for now please ensure you keep Thursday, April 11th free in your diary.
