On his path after Queens'...
“When I started my career in the mid-1980s, investment banking was just starting to evolve from a clubby sort of world into the highly quantitative business we see today. I was fortunate that I had the mathematical background just when it was needed, and I think quantitative skills will continue to be in strong demand by the financial industry going forward.”
The David Moore Fellowship in Mathematics
The David Moore Fellowship in Mathematics was endowed in 2016 to support a University Teaching Officer in the Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics (DAMPT). This inaugural Fellow supervises and is the academic advisor to Mathematics students at the College.
“I’m very grateful for the education I received at Queens’. The Maths Tripos is very challenging, and I couldn’t have succeeded without excellent in-college supervisions. I want to help ensure the continued high quality of Maths teaching at Queens’ in the future, so that others may have the opportunities I had.”
The inaugural Fellow
Professor Julia Gog OBE

Julia's research uses mathematical techniques to address scientific questions in the field, particularly to understand infectious disease. In 2020 she was awarded an OBE for her services to Academia and the Covid-19 response. Julia is currently part of the SPI-M group, which provides expert advice to the Department of Health and Social Care and wider UK government on scientific matters relating to how to respond to an influenza pandemic.
