Thanks to the generous support of the Simons Foundation, the INI-Simons Postdoctoral Fellowships in Mathematics were established in 2021. The scheme was created to enable exceptional early career researchers in the mathematical sciences to gain experience, foster independence and forge new connections, thereby assisting them during the challenging realities of COVID-19 and aiding them on their way to a successful academic career.
These prestigious one-year fellowships see successful candidates spend four-to-six months participating in an INI programme with the remainder of the period spent at either of Cambridge University’s Departments of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics (DPMMS) or Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMTP), or the within the mathematics department of another UK-based higher education institution.

|Nicolas Boulle 🔈||University of Cambridge||The mathematical and statistical foundation of future data-driven engineering||Nicolas completed his BSc and Master of Mathematics at the Ecole Normale Supérieure de Rennes in France, before doing a year of research at Cornell University, followed by a PhD in Mathematics at the University of Oxford. His research interests lie at the intersection between numerical analysis and machine learning.|
|Patrick Sprenger 🔈||University of Cambridge||Dispersive hydrodynamics: mathematics, simulation and experiments, with applications in nonlinear waves||Pat completed his BSc in electrical engineering at Seattle University, followed by a MSc and PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Colorado Boulder. His research focuses on identifying and characterizing nonlinear dispersive wave phenomena.|
|Aluna Rizzoli 🔈||University of Cambridge||Groups, representations and applications: new perspectives||Aluna completed his Master of Mathematics degree at the University of St Andrews, before obtaining his PhD at Imperial College London under the supervision of Professor Martin Liebeck. His research interests involve algebraic groups and their rational actions.|
|Anagha Madhusudanan 🔈||University of Cambridge||Mathematical aspects of turbulence: where do we stand?||After a bachelor’s degree in Physics at the University of Delhi in India, Anagha went on to do a master’s degree in Mathematical Sciences at the University of Bristol, UK. This was followed up with a PhD in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Melbourne in Australia, and then a postdoctoral position at GALCIT in the California Institute of Technology, USA. She is interested in the analysis of low-order mathematical models of turbulent fluid flows, and particularly focuses on wall-bounded flows.|
|Antoine Remond-Tiedrez 🔈
|University of Cambridge||Mathematical aspects of turbulence: where do we stand?||Antoine completed his BSc and Master of Mathematics and Physics at the University of Warwick, followed by a PhD in Mathematical Sciences from Carnegie Mellon University and a postdoctoral position as Van Vleck Visiting Assistant Professor at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. His research interests lie in nonlinear partial differential equations, in particular those arising in the study of fluid dynamics.|
|Avi Mayorcas 🔈||University of Cambridge||Frontiers in kinetic theory: connecting microscopic to macroscopic scales||Avi completed his BSc in Mathematics and Philosophy at the University of Nottingham, before obtaining an MSc in Mathematics at King’s College London followed by a PhD in Mathematics from the University of Oxford. His research interests lie at the intersection of stochastic analysis and interacting particle systems.|
|Emine Yildirim 🔈||University of Cambridge||Cluster algebras and representation theory||Emine Yıldırım was a Coleman Research Fellow at Queen’s University after obtaining her Ph.D. in Mathematics from Université du Québec à Montréal. She is interested in representation theory of algebras, cluster algebras, their categorisation, and related combinatorics.|
