Welsh Crucible 2018
Vicki graduated from the University of Exeter with a Masters in Mathematics and went on to complete a PhD at the University of Bath in Mathematical Biology. In 2010 she began a Postdoctoral Fellowship at the University of Michigan in the USA and is now working as a lecturer in Mathematics at the University of South Wales.
Her main research interest is in using mathematics to model how diseases spread through populations and working out the best interventions to use to halt their spread, but she also has interests in using mathematics to describe the movement of animals in their natural habitats.
Vicki is highly committed to interdisciplinary work and promoting the benefits of including mathematical modelling in a wide range of applied settings.
