Congratulations to Dr Julia Gog, who has been awarded the Whitehead Prize from the London Mathematical Society for her wide-ranging contributions to the mathematical understanding of disease dynamics, particularly influenza, based on both mathematical mastery and profound biological insight, gained from her long-standing collaborations with immunologists and epidemiologists.
Dr Gog is the David N. Moore Fellow and Director of Studies in Mathematics at Queens'.
The Whitehead Prize is awarded yearly by the London Mathematical Society to multiple mathematicians working in the United Kingdom who are at an early stage of their career. The prize is named in memory of homotopy theory pioneer J. H. C. Whitehead.
Listen to one of Dr Gog's Lectures from LMS Popular Lecture Series, Epidemics and Viruses.
