Together with The Smith Institute, we look forward to welcoming Kate Smith-Miles, Professor of Applied Mathematics at University of Melbourne to give the 2017 Alan Tayler Lecture. Professor Smith-Miles' lecture is entitled, 'Optimization in the Darkness of Uncertainty: when you don't know what you don't know, and what you do know isn't much!'.

St Catz has a long tradition in applied and industrial Mathematics, and has hosted a series of lectures on Mathematics and its applications since 1986. In 1995, the series was renamed in memory of Alan Tayler, the first Fellow in Applied Mathematics to be appointed at St Catz, in tribute to his efforts and achievements in this field. This lecture series is very generously sponsored by The Smith Institute.
