Robert MacKay FRS CPhys FInstP CMath FIMA is a Professor in the Mathematics Institute of the University of Warwick and Director of Mathematical Interdisciplinary Research at Warwick. He was Director of Warwick’s Centre for Complexity Science from 2007-15 and President of the (UK) Institute of Mathematics and its Applications for 2012-13. He has made many contributions to the theory and applications of Nonlinear Dynamics. He has extensive research leadership and management experience.
Robert proposes to develop (i) Gaussian processes to detect underdamped oscillations, with particular reference to AC electricity networks, (ii) models of financial systems to address their stability and regulation, (iii) design of assessor-assessee graphs for panel assessments to optimise the use of expertise and calibration.
