Description The award helped 4 Early Career Researchers to transition from their PhD project onto a successful research trajectory in academia.

Dr Leonard Miele:
Dr Miele is an expert in Mathematical Biology and Medicine. He worked in the Department of Applied Mathematics, most notable with Dr Mike Evans
After his fellowship, he accepted a position in Avignon. He is currently (2024) a researcher at CNRS and the Université de Montpellier, France

Dr Richard Mathews:
Dr Mathews is a set theorist working in axiomatic set theory, particularly subsystems of the "standard" axiomatisation of mathematics.
He joined our excellent Logic group of the Department of Pure Mathematics and collaborated with Professor Michael Rathjen, Dr Andrew Brooke-Taylor. After his fellowship, he went on a postdoctoral project with Laura Fontanella at Université Paris-Est Créteil, France.

Constructing the Constructible Universe Constructively joint with Michael Rathjen. Annals of Pure and Applied Logic, 175(3), (2024) arxiv:2206.08283 (2022)

Dr Fiona Torzewska:
During her fellowship, Dr Torzewska was a member of the Department of Pure Mathematics. She has widespread interests in topology, algebra, representation theory and category theory with applications in mathematical physics. She worked with Professor Paul Martin and Dr Joao Faria Martins. After her fellowship with us, she became a Senior Research associate at the University of East Anglia working with Vanessa Miemietz, received a Junior Reseach Fellow from the Erwin Schrödinger Institute to work with Nils Carqueville at the University of Vienna, Austria and is now (2024) a Research Fellow at the University of Bristol.

Dr Daniel Richards:

Dr Richards is an expert in Fluid Dynamics and, in particular, for anisotropic fluid flow as it specifically occurs in ice. During his fellowship he worked with scientists of the FD group and the Leeds Institue for Fluid Dynamics, most notable with Dr Sam Pegler. Since 2023, he is a Research Associate at the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS), University of Tasmania.
