Maria Bruna awarded Royal Society University Research Fellowship

Date 28 September 2018

Many congratulations to Dr Maria Bruna, Junior Research Fellow in Mathematics, who has been awarded one of the Royal Society's prestigious University Research Fellowships for her work on Continuum models and gradient flows of interacting particle systems.

Dr Maria BrunaMaria's research seeks to understand the behaviour of complex systems consisting of many interacting components. These systems appear in many different situations in biology and engineering, such as a population of cancer cells or contaminant particles going through a filter. Her work focuses on developing and analysing mathematical and computational methods to represent these systems.

The Royal Society University Research Fellowship is a research fellowship awarded to outstanding early career scientists who are judged by the Royal Society to have the potential to become leaders in their field. The Fellowship is scheduled to run from 1 October 2018 until 30 September 2023.
