Cathie Wells wins Smith Institute’s annual TakeAIM competition 

Congratulations to MPE PhD Reading Student, Cathie Wells, who has won the Smith Institute’s annual TakeAIM competition.

The Smith Institute explains:

“Established in 2011, the Smith Institute’s annual TakeAIM competition is an opportunity for university students to showcase their work on the industrial stage. TakeAIM’s goal is to highlight the crucial role mathematics plays in solving real-world problems while rewarding the academic exploration of future innovators who undertake pioneering research.”

“From medicine to manufacturing, security to social media, mathematics is evolving to play an increasingly fundamental role in the way we live. It is the fresh imagination and insights of young mathematical scientists that help to understand and predict the behaviour of physical, biological, and social systems in today’s ever-changing world.”
