Reading East MP Matt Rodda visited the STEM for Britain exhibition in Westminster recently to find out more about the scientific work done by academics, researchers and developers – especially those from his constituency.
The event was delivered in connection with renowned academic institutions, leading industry professional bodies and the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, which culminated in a prize-giving ceremony later in the day at Portcullis House.
Matt met with Dr Horatio Boedihardjo who is both a constituent and a Lecturer in Probability/Stochastic Analysis at the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Reading. Dr Boedihardjo guided Matt through a detailed presentation of his work on 'calculus for irregular paths' drawing upon his mathematical subject specialism of 'rough path theory'.
“I believe that these events which bring together pioneering scientists, mathematicians, engineers and technologists with leading professional bodies to understand the theories, breakthroughs and advances being made in the STEM sector are important to progress the understanding and vital work in this area. The presenting and sharing of information and knowledge is essential to educators, universities and industry leaders – and events such as this is what helps the UK retain its key position in the competitive knowledge economy.”
