The University of York Mathematics Society - Our aim is to enhance the social experience of students, expand academic opportunities in mathematics and forge strong relations for our members to use in future careers and beyond

Meet the Committee

We are a society aimed at everyone with an interest in mathematics. With social and academic motives we organise public lectures delivered by globally renowned external speakers who are leaders in their field, study groups aimed at ensuring you are fully supported with your exam preparation, as well as a diverse array of social events; including a few trips away in the forthcoming year.

Our current committee consists of:

Philip Hutchinson - Chair

Philip is the chair of the Mathematics Society here at York. Phil enjoys learning about all aspects of maths but his real forte is in pure maths. Outside of maths he enjoys cycling, music and trying new things. If you have any suggestions for our society please do not hesitate to contact him!

 

 

Louis Lyle - Secretary

Louis is a 3rd year Mathematics and Statistics student and is particularly interested in Financial Mathematics. He is also one of the editors for the Lemon Press.

 

 

 

Reece Goding - Treasurer

Reece is a 2nd year Maths student with an interest in pure mathematics and statistics, who is looking towards either building a career in actuarial work or in research. To this day, he still wastes his time playing Yu-Gi-Oh, rolling D20s, and worrying too much about careers. He is a lover of cake, and picked York uni over Manchester almost entirely because of the free cake offered at Coffee and Calculus (prospective students, take note). He is still heart broken by our lack of a Cake Rep and hopes that this will soon change.

 

Keziah Clarke - Academic Officer

Kez is one of the two members to have taken on the role of Academic Officer. She studies Mathematics and Statistics, her particular interest is in Stochastic analysis. Other than sleeping and having fun processing data on R-studio, she also enjoys going to see plays at the theatre and to local heavy metal gigs, doing pole exercise and playing darts!

 

Jake Stephens - Academic Officer

Jake is a pure mathematician; his main mathematical interests are number theory and game theory. He is also a triathlete, saxophonist and pianist, and plays ultimate frisbee. Jake has admired the connection between mathematics and music since a very young age, and in his free time enjoys improvising, composing and listening to music. Jake also currently studies Chinese parallel with his degree, and his future ambitions include teaching english/maths in China.

 

Caitlin Maddrell and Chloe Collins - Social Secretaries

Hi everyone, we are Caitlin and Chloe and we are your social secs for this year. We are fun, enthusiastic and LOVE angles (to a degree). We have been plotting some fantastic events (graph soon available) and hopefully, unlike parallel lines we will cross paths at all our socials. Add us on Facebook and Twitter to keep updated with the continuous functions taking place! Warning! On our socials, alcohol and calculus do not mix so never drink and derive! XOXO Maths love!

 

Sam Callaghan - Webmaster

Sam is a 3rd year Maths Student and specialises primarily in Mathematical Physics. Sam is a saxophonist/clarinetist and enjoys playing in the university musical ensembles. In his spare time Sam enjoys gaming and listening to rock/jazz music. Sam also is part of the university softball team and on occasion does a bit of rock climbing.

 

 

Rob Brown - Ordinary Member

Rob did his undergraduate degree at York and has stayed here to do a part-time MSc by Research on groups of Lie type. His main mathematical interests are in abstract algebra. In his spare time Rob does a lot of amature software development (mostly games). Rob likes walking, hawaiian shirts and storage jars. When possible, he prefer to consume cheese, black tea and dry cider.

Nathan Plumb - First year liaison

Nathan is one of three members to have taken on the role of First Year Liaison. He studies Actuarial Science and as such is mainly interested in Statistical Mathematics. In his free time he is an accomplished musician, playing in two orchestras and having achieved three grade 8’s. In what little spare time he has after doing all this he also goes caving, swing dances and worries about how little time he has left to do homework in.
