2018 Dillwyn medal for STEMM

The Dillwyn medal for STEMM was awarded to Dr Gwyn Bellamy, a senior lecturer at the Department of Mathematics, at the University of Glasgow. His research focuses on geometric representation theory, one of the fastest-moving fields in twentieth-century mathematics. At the core of Dr Bellamy’s is communicating research and mathematics, publishing in both English and Welsh.

Dr Bellamy said:

“I am absolutely delighted, and honoured, to have been awarded the Dillwyn medal (STEMM). It is very gratifying to see that the Learned Society of Wales appreciates, and celebrates, the work done by early career researchers from Wales. In particular, in my case, I hope this will go a long way towards strengthening the ties between mathematicians in Wales and the broader mathematical community in Britain.”
