Chalkdust

Chalkdust

Chalkdust is a magazine for the mathematically curious, and I’m proud and honoured to have been part of the wonderful team of PhD students at University College London who founded it in February 2015, working on its first five issues (until writing a thesis took over everything).

This project aims to challenge the stereotype of mathematics as being pointless and boring and mathematicians as being similarly boring—to say nothing of social awkwardness.  It strives, through its weekly online articles and twice-yearly printed editions, to make mathematics more accessible and increase awareness of the huge diversity of applications it has.

Far from being useless, it lies at the heart of all other scientific disciplines and has huge amounts to contribute to many others.
