ITTs take high level challenges from external partners and formulate them into mathematical questions that can be addressed through long-term research projects.
Our partners for ITT17 are Mayden, who specialise in technology that supports healthcare services deliver data driven, outcome focussed and patient centred care, and the Environment Agency, who work to create better places for people and wildlife, and support sustainable development.
The partners bring a wide variety of statistical applied mathematics driven-challenges which, through facilitated group work and creation of small, mixed-expertise teams, will be re-formulated into large mathematical questions that can be taken forward as PhD projects.
SAMBa ITTs are by invitation only.
To find out more about the ITT model, please have a look at our Integrative Think Tanks webpage.

Welcome to Cohort 10! This week will provide an opportunity for you to explore campus, meet other students and members of staff, find out more about the programme, undertake introductory training and participate in some fun social activities.
Congratulations to the Maths team who won the friendly summer rounders event hosted by the Sports Department on 26 July. The team, comprising PhD students and staff, took on the Sports Training Village in the final, winning by a crucial half rounder!
The next in the series of joint events between the University of Bath, UNAM (Mexico city), CIMAT (Guanajuato, Mexico), and University of Warwick. The format will be three mini-courses and talks by senior colleagues and students. It is a great occasion to learn about different topics and to meet the international community.
A new book published by Dr Kit Yates discusses how we make predictions, how they can go wrong, and how we can use maths to act as a guide to avoid the pitfalls.
Wolfson Lecture Theatre, 12.00-16.30
Students from cohort 9. who have completed their first year and are starting their PhD research, present an overview of their thesis formulation reports. We will also include introductions to students from cohort 10.
We were joined by partners Syngenta and RSS-Hydro for ITT18 which took place at the Bath Royal Literary & Scientific Institution (BRLSI) from 12-16 June 2023.
A residential retreat for SAMBa students at the lovely Ammerdown retreat centre, set in the heart of beautiful Somerset countryside. Students from across the SAMBa cohorts will be able to dedicate two days to writing, including structured and facilitated quiet writing time, goal-setting and review.
The Doctoral Recognition Awards, organised by the Doctoral College, recognise students and staff who have made contributions to enhancing the doctoral student experience. Congratulations to Carmen van-de-l'Isle, Jenny Power, Pawel Rudnicki and Tosin Babasola who all won student awards and to Pranav Singh who won a staff award.
The SAMBa conference provides an opportunity for students to showcase their work in a supportive environment, alongside external keynote speakers. The work of SAMBa students includes projects in statistics, probability, analysis, numerical analysis, mathematical biology, fluid dynamics, machine learning and high-performance computing.
The event aims at gathering PhD students and young researchers from the University of Bath (UK) and the University of Torino (Italy), and from their closest scientific partners. The purpose of the event is to promote scientific knowledge exchange in the respective fields of research and to foster potential new collaborations.
