Mentor: Trish Campbell, Peter Doherty Institute


Today Trish joined us to talk about being a mathematician working outside of a mathematics/statistics department. Some points raised were:


  • Trying to keep links with mathematics/statistics department


  • The challenges of working with people from different fields of academia (clinicians, biologists etc)


  • The challenges of how to explain mathematics and mathematics models to a non-mathematical audience
