Event Details

As a follow-up to Black Mathematician Month 2019, the UCL MAPS Faculty is organising a networking evening, primarily aimed at Maths and Physics undergraduate students of Black and African-Caribbean descent. With this event, we wish to celebrate Black Role Models in STEM, and increase the visibility of and strengthen the connection between Black undergraduate scientists and mathematicians.

The evening will consist of 90 minutes of short talks by  invited speakers, followed by a reception with lots of opportunities for networking. Whilst aimed at undergraduate students, we also welcome postgraduate students, staff and professionals outside academia.


Our invited speakers:

Dr. Nira Chamberlain is the President of the IMA and the 2018 winner of the Big Internet Math off.

Prof. Carla Faria is a professor of Physics at UCL and works on Strong-field and Attosecond Physics.
Dr. Amna Shaddad is a mathematician working in political campaigning.
  Luke Davis is a PhD student in Physics at UCL and organiser of Diversity Challenge.

This event is kindly funded by the London  Mathematical Society through the Diversity in Mathematics Day Grant and by the UCL MAPS Faculty.


There is some travel funding available. For further information please contact Dr. Luciano Rila at
