Alumnus becomes President of the Institute of Mathematics and Applications

Dr Nira Chamberlain (Industrial Mathematical Modelling, 1993) recently became President of the Institute Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) for 2020-2021.

Nira first joined the IMA in 1997 and attended the first Early Career Mathematicians’ Group Conference in 2004. Nira is now the first Early Career Mathematician to go on to become President of the IMA.  

The alumnus is following in the footsteps of Loughborough Professor, Deputy Vice-Chancellor Chris Linton, who is a former President of the IMA.

Nira was also invited to speak at Parliament last week as part of STEM for Britain, where he made a speech to Politicians, PhD STEM students, Professional Society representatives and the Ambassador of Vietnam.

Congratulations to Nira on his achievements.
