Outside his role as Lincoln’s MCR President, Robert McDonald is studying for a DPhil in Mathematical Modelling. Working with biologists, economists and industrial specialists, he uses applied mathematics to help other scientists understand complex theories and data, and will be speaking about how information and data are summarised and presented to general audiences in popular culture, media, art and academia.
