Conference Announcements

Our Speakers

Keynote: Ciarán Mac an Bhaird
Ciarán is an Assistant Professor and Director of the Mathematics Support Centre at Maynooth University. He was appointed to his roles in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at Maynooth University in 2007. He has received multiple awards in recognition of his teaching and support of students, recently including a national 2016 Teaching Hero Award, an inaugural Maynooth University Teaching Award in 2018 and a History in Mathematics Education Award in 2021 from the British Society for the History of Mathematics (BSHM). He was a founding committee member of the Irish Mathematics Learning Support Network and is Education Officer on the BSHM Council. Most of his research focus is on mathematics education and in the history of mathematics, but he still dabbles occasionally in Algebraic Number Theory.   

Keynote: Professor Rachel Hilliam

Rachel is a Professor of Statistics at The Open University where she has held various leadership roles. In 2019 whilst Director of Teaching for Mathematics and Statistics, she introduced a new degree in Data Science which had over 400 students across the UK in its first year. She is an expert in teaching statistics at higher education level to adult students who do not necessarily have standard university entrance qualifications.

Her learning and teaching interests include supporting students who are studying statistics as part of a non-mathematical qualification and exploring the different types of statistical anxieties which such students can exhibit. She has a strong interest in supporting colleagues’ teaching activities and has delivered the statistics session for the national induction course organised by the IMA and was one of the founders of the teaching and learning mathematics online, TALMO, initiative.

Rachel is currently Vice-President of the RSS, leading on its Professional Affairs activities. Since 2020 she has been working with other professional societies, government organisations and industry to explore the professionalisation and accreditation of Data Scientists, a project of national importance, included in the Government’s data strategy. This work resulted in the formation of The Alliance for Data Science Professionals, which Rachel chairs. This alliance is creating industry-wide professional standards and a certification process that will enable both individuals and education providers to gain recognition based on skills and knowledge within Data Science.

Plenary: Joe Kyle, University of Birmingham
