Alumni events

Our online Faculty events for alumni share insights and ideas from the wide range of Cambridge mathematics through informal conversation with the researchers involved. Invitations to future events are sent out in our regular alumni email newsletters, and you can catch up with the recordings of the most recent events below.

You can also watch recordings of all the events so far in the series here.



Alumni event May 2022 - Unveiling Mysteries of the Quantum World

In May 2022 Dr Maria Ubiali and Dr Sergii Strelchuk from the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics joined Professor Colm-Cille Caulfield and an audience of Cambridge alumni to discuss their latest research.

The discussion focused on their recent results, exploring how developments in computational machine learning are revealing mysteries from the quantum world, and how quantum effects can be applied in turn to revolutionise the ways in which scientists process information.

Alumni Festival event September 2021 - Maths or Medicine: Which Comes First?

Mathematics and statistics are driving a revolution in medicine and healthcare, but exciting new maths is also being discovered thanks to the challenges that healthcare raises.

In this conversation, recorded as part of the 2021 Cambridge Alumni Festival, Professor Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb and Professor Sir John Aston discuss how medicine has led them to work on all kinds of maths and statistics, much of which has applications in some very different places.
