Richard Pearson has been awarded a
Distinguished Achievement Award Postgraduate Student of the Year 2010 from
Richard's research was on development and benchmarking of microarray analysis methods. The software he and his collaborators developed,
Puma (http://bioconductor.org/packages/2.3/bioc/html/puma.html), has been downloaded to over 3000 unique IP addresses since 2008, while the paper on this, published in Bioinformatics, was the journal's most accessed article (1400-1600 views per month) for two months and was also the featured article on the journal website. He also wrote two other papers during his PhD; for one he was awarded the School's Best Paper Prize (2008). Congratulations to Richard for his excellent PhD.
The last Postgraduate Student of the Year from CS was Xuejun Lui (2007), also supervised by Magnus.

Network Dynamics and Synchronization 17-19 May 10
This three day conference will look at problems involving the theory of synchronization in network systems, and applications in biology and engineering.
There have been major theoretical breakthroughs in this area through the work of Field on the one hand (with the idea of re-patching equivalence) and Golubitsky and Stewart (through balanced colouring). One of the motivations behind this conference is to stimulate the interaction between researchers working on particular applications and those involved in theoretical issues. It is particularly important that graduate students and other younger researchers understand the breadth of the area (if working in applications) or the way applications can stimulate new theoretical questions (if working on theory), and the LMS provides five bursaries (3 nights accommodation and lunch only) for UK graduate student participation.
