Turing Fellowships awarded to Mathematics academics

Four School of Mathematics researchers have been awarded a prestigious fellowship with The Alan Turing Institute.

Dr Georgios Aivaliotis, Professor Jeanine Houwing Duistermaat, Dr Richard Mann and Dr Jon Ward will begin the two year fellowships this autumn, and will be supported in developing projects alongside, and in collaboration with, other Turing Fellows.

The Fellowships, which are awarded to those with proven research excellence in data science, artificial intelligence or a related field, come after last year’s announcement of a partnership between the University and the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.

The three academics will join the Turing’s existing community of researchers, alongside 22 other Fellows from the University of Leeds, who represent multiple faculties and research areas.

As part of the University’s collaboration with The Alan Turing InstituteLeeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA) will be heavily involved in the coordination of projects and activity amongst Turing Fellows and their research teams.

“Being a university partner of The Alan Turing Institute provides opportunities for the University’s researchers to work closely with the Institute’s academic, industry and policy partners and undertake the most ambitious, impactful research possible.” Said Professor Lisa Roberts, Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research and Innovation.

“I am confident The Alan Turing Institute will benefit from LIDA’s interdisciplinary approach and the fantastic engagement we have achieved with national partners across the retail, energy and healthcare sectors” added Professor Roberts.
