Edinburgh Mathematical Society 2022 Impact Prize

Congratulations to Chris Dent, Amy Wilson and Stan Zachary (Heriot-Watt) who were awarded the Edinburgh Mathematical Society's 2022 Impact Prize. The Impact Prize recognises "the contribution of individuals, teams or partnerships whose work in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, mathematical physics or statistics has had outstanding, demonstrable impact or influence in fields beyond the mathematical sciences". Chris, Amy, and Stan received the prize for their work supporting National Grid as Electricity System Operator with methodology for assessment of the risk of electricity supply shortfalls in Great Britain and for recommending an amount of capacity to procure to mitigate this risk; and for wider contributions to development of collaboration between the energy sector and the mathematical science community.
