Manchester SIAM Student Chapter Pizza Social and Blog Launch

The Manchester SIAM Student Chapter hosted a pizza social evening for our members on November 19, 2016. This was our first event of the academic year, and was a great opportunity for new and returning members to find out about the events the chapter will be running this year, as well as finding out about SIAM more generally.

After a short talk from the chapter’s president, Weijian Zhang, pizza was served, and people broke off to socialize and network with each other. Math related games were available, and people had a relaxed atmosphere in which to get to know their fellow members.

The Manchester SIAM Student Chapter has also launched an applied mathematics blog at https://manchestersiam.wordpress.com/. This blog provides a space for our members to share their research, or just discuss areas of applied math that are of interest to them. The first post is about applying topological graph theory to chemistry and is live now, and the next post will be uploaded later in December.

Secretary, Manchester SIAM Student Chapter
