Congratulations to Dr Maria Bruna who has won the 2016 Women of the Future Award for Science.

Dr Maria Bruna (centreMaria Bruna wins Women of the Future Award 2016 in the photo) is a Junior Research Fellow in Mathematics at St John's. She won her award for her work on stochastic models of interacting particles and its application to industry. Maria is a member of the 2020 Science programme for the Mathematical and Computational Modelling of Complex Natural Systems. Her work seeks to explain how individual-level mechanisms give rise to population-level behaviour in biology and ecology.

The Women of the Future Awards, supported by Aviva and now in their eleventh year, recognise inspirational women aged 35 or under and celebrate their talent across 14 categories including business, science, culture, media, technology, mentoring and more. 

Founder of the awards, Pinky Lilani CBE DL, commented, ‘Through the Women of the Future Programme we have built a remarkable, informal community of influential women determined not only to build fruitful professional and personal relationships with one another, but to be advocates for an exciting new generation of business talent.’
