https://ima.org.uk/8629/going-flow-fluid-dynamics-important-understanding-body-works/
A talk by Dr Jennifer Tweedy (Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London)
Abstract
The human body is full of fluid – not just blood, urine and the humours in the eye, but also the tissue fluid surrounding every organ and every cell. It is therefore helpful to be able to model this using our understanding of forces and the basic properties of matter: this is the study of fluid dynamics. For example, the flow of blood in the arteries is similar to the flow of water through pipes – except that the pipes are stretchy and flexible. This is one way to combine engineering with biology – hence ‘bioengineering’.
For example, when we look at blood flow, we can gain some important insights into cardiovascular disease. The way that plaques build up in blood vessels – on the insides of bends and at bifurcations – can be explained with fluid dynamics. This also helps to guide the development of clinical solutions: for example, an arterial stent in the shape of a corkscrew has been developed, which makes the flow more uniform. When looking at arterial flow in the body as a whole, a 55-artery model based on simple fluid dynamical principles has led to a remarkable amount of insight, and this helps to confirm the usefulness of this approach.
Meanwhile, in the eye, fluid dynamic considerations help to explain conditions such as retinal detachment, glaucoma and macular degeneration. For example, currently many clinicians believe that detachment of the retina at the back of the eye happen due to particular fluid currents in the eye. A current goal of our research is therefore to ascertain whether or not this is a realistic model – and thus to be able to develop a much more complete understanding of this condition.

A talk by Dr Adam Kucharski (Assistant Professor, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine)
Abstract
From the statisticians forecasting sports scores to the intelligent bots beating human poker players, mathematics has revolutionised gambling. But gambling has also had a huge impact on maths and science, shaping everything from probability and statistics to game theory and artificial intelligence.
Drawing on research for my book The Perfect Bet, I’ll look at the long and tangled history between betting and science, and explore how gambling continues to generate insights into luck and decision-making today.
Adam Kucharski is an assistant professor in the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine, where he uses mathematical and statistical techniques to investigate infectious disease outbreaks. Winner of the 2012 Wellcome Trust Science Writing Prize, his popular science articles have appeared in the Observer, Wired, New Scientist and Scientific American. He has a degree in mathematics from the University of Warwick and a PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Cambridge.

talk given at IMA London branch 1st November 2016
http://www.ima.org.uk/activities/branches/london.cfm.html
Abstract: There are so many terms in the analytics industry today, and no one really understands them well: Data science, data analysis (or is it analytics?), data architecture, web analytics, business intelligence, and management information; there are also many platforms from relational databases to Hadoop clusters, and programming languages like python, .NET, C# and F# (sounds like music!); not to mention all the statistical packages like (R, SPSS and STATA) and front end tools (like Pentaho, D3.js or Tableau). But what does this mean? Where do all of these elements fit in the data and analytics profession?
In this talk I will explain what they are, how they work and how they interact with each other, but most importantly how businesses use them to take advantage of all these mathematical tools and make data-driven decisions. I will give real life examples on these tools and methods like machine learning, data mining and mathematical modelling and also how platforms are used.
Dr. Plata did his doctoral research at Imperial College London before taking up a post as a research fellow at the University of Exeter. Prior to that, he did a degree and masters in mathematics, specializing firstly on differential and algebraic topology and moving then into spectral theory, homeomorphic dynamics and ergodic theory which classically fall into the applied fields like optimisation, game theory, and machine learning. Among other publications, he wrote a book under Peter Lang Publishers titled "Visions of Applied Mathematics"
In terms of mathematical applications, Dr. Plata has extensive experience building, and developing analytics programmes as well as leading data projects and data science teams from FTSE100 companies to technology SMEs. He has worked mainly in the retail space including digital and mobile, pioneering on behaviour analytics, machine learning and big data.
He is a fellow of the IMA and he currently heads the 'data science and advanced analytics' team at Home Retail.
