The Postgraduate Seminar Series is a series of talks given by postgraduate students in the maths department to postgraduate students in the maths department.
The topics of talks vary significantly; often (but not always) students talk about something connected to their own research or interests, such as what they are working on for their PhD, a topic they focused on during their undergrad, or an area of maths they specialise in.
As well as an opportunity to learn about interesting areas of maths via accessible talks, the seminars are a good way to get to know other postgrads in the department and are an opportunity to gain presenting experience in a relaxed, friendly environment. Free food is also provided.
PSS takes place on Thursdays at 10:15 am in the Wolfson Lecture Theatre (4W 1.7).
TBA; none unless emails say otherwise.
