Join the team

Have you always dreamed of designing the cover of a popular mathematics magazine? Or sprucing up content for the inside of the magazine? Or raising sponsorship to help Chalkdust continue to grow? Or pretending to be a pun-loving dead mathematician?

At Chalkdust, we are always looking for new volunteers to join us in doing all these things. Whether you are skilled at image editing, TeΧ typesetting, proofreading, organising events, writing not too bad jokes or deciding what’s hot and what’s not, there is a place for you at Chalkdust.

Issue 15 team

TD is an undergraduate at UCL who actually understands the 1967 James Bond spoof Casino Royale, starring David Niven, Peter Sellers, Woody Allen, and Orson Welles as Le Chiffre.

Madeleine is a pHd StUdEnT in mathematics and behavioural genomics at Imperial College London. She likes open water swimming, toast, the Oxford comma, and tHiS mEmE. She has still found none of her optimised strokes of any use in the Serpentine.

Ellen is a PhD student at UCL studying fluid mechanics. She specialises in the flow around droplets and ice particles.

King is a PhD student at UCL studying PDEs from physics from a pure maths point of view. He loves everything beautiful, whether a theorem or a photo. In his spare time, he likes doing photography, trying new things and daydreaming.

Sophie Maclean is a recent maths graduate from the University of Cambridge and very much misses her degree. She has no free time—she is a Chalkdust editor.

Matthew is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge. He hasn’t had time to play Klax since the noughties, but he’s pretty sure that Coke is it!

Belgin is a data scientist having got her PhD in population genetics. When not working, you can usually find Belgin either playing the piano or playing Math Blaster. She is pictured here standing next to her copy of Zeeman’s catastrophe machine.

David is a final year PhD student at UCL studying geometric group theory. When not doing maths he can usually be found singing or playing the flute.

Jakob is a PhD student and mathematician from London and works mainly in differential geometry. In his spare time, he likes to draw, and think about mathematics in art.

Bea is a PhD student in the computer science department at UCL. Since joining the team she’s found that the other editors find the phrase ‘it needs more white space’ very triggering.

Adam is an assistant professor at Durham University, where he investigates weird, non-Newtonian fluids. If he’s not talking about the maths of chocolate fountains he is probably thinking about fonts, helping Professor Dirichlet answer your personal problems, and/or listening to BBC Radio 2.
