PhD Journey: Shaun Gietman
Aug 5 2020
A bit of maths is good for your health, according to Dr Kyle Wedgwood. Exploring the relationship between mathematics and neuroscience, Dr Wedgwood from the University of Exeter’s Centre of Biomedical Modelling and Analysis will join the list of international speakers next February at the ACES electromaterials symposium in Geelong.
With his research themes in health and mathematics, Dr Wedgewood, whose work is funded by the Medical Research Council (MRC), has a particular interest in dementia, diabetes, coarse-grained bifurcation analysis and phase-oscillators. He looks at applying techniques to develop new mathematical models of network behaviours to better understand how cells interact to perform functional tasks and address his research themes.

Dr Wedgwood will speak on his latest discoveries at the symposium, with his topic: ‘Blueprint for islets: using mathematics to design islets’.
About the International Electromaterials Science Symposium
Set for February the 11-13 in Geelong, Australia, the 2019 International Electromaterials Science Symposium will feature renowned speakers from USA, France, Japan, UK, Spain, India, Korea and Australia. This symposium brings together leading researchers engaged in ground-breaking materials science, presenting an opportunity to review the most recent advances in materials science, new electrochemical applications and fundamental understanding in this important field of electromaterials. Topics will cover both the fundamental and applied aspects of electromaterials and new devices across our broad areas of research in Health, Energy and Ethics.
About the ARC Centre of Excellence for Electromaterials Science (ACES)
Led by Australian Laureate Fellow Professor Gordon Wallace, ACES is the pre-eminent world centre for electromaterials science. Using state-of-the-art additive fabrication, ACES is at the forefront of new electrochemical device development for energy conversion/storage and medical bionics.
