On Wednesday 27th September Old Blue Dr Colin Poole, from the Class of 2009, delivered an insightful talk to our Year 12 and Year 13 mathematics and physics students.

Colin, who received the 2013 Rosenhead Prize for Mathematical Sciences, whilst studying for his MSc in Mathematics from the University of Liverpool, recently completed his PhD thesis in ‘Gradient-flow equations for General Quantum Field Theories’. Earlier this year Colin relocated to Denmark to undertake his first Post-Doc at the University of Southern Denmark.

Colin’s talk comprised a mix of life at university, key components of a mathematics degree, the overlapping of other science disciplines, how to be a disciplined student and the many career opportunities available to mathematics graduates. Colin spoke with good insights and with a humorous style. It was meticulously informative to our Key Stage 5 students who are currently giving their future career paths serious consideration.

Colin answered numerous questions at the end of his talk and we are very grateful for his visit.
