Coronavirus (COVID-19) update: Department of Mathematics
Dear 2020 and 2021 Maths graduates,
At the summer 2020 graduation I promised that we would hold a summer reunion for you in 2021. Sadly that no longer looks tenable. I and my colleagues would love to see you again, so please be assured: when we are able to do so, we will hold a reunion event.
With best wishes,
Professor Niall MacKay, Head of Department, March 23rd 2021

Professor Roger Penrose is an English mathematician, mathematical physicist, and philosopher of science. He was knighted for his services to Science in 1994 and awarded a Nobel Laureate in Physics in 2020 "for the discovery that black hole formation is a robust prediction of the general theory of relativity".
We support the principles laid out in the London Mathematical Society Good Practice Scheme, and aim to create an inclusive, mutually supportive community which enables everyone to do their best work and where everyone is treated with dignity and respect.
