Angela Saini

We are honoured that Angela Saini, award-winning science journalist, author and broadcaster is taking part in our Winter Core Maths Festival. This year she was named one of the world’s top 50 thinkers by Prospect Magazine and her books, Superior, Inferior and Geek Nation have received widespread critical acclaim.

“It has taken a pandemic to put the issue of minority-ethnic health at the top of the agenda.” What does the data say about racial disparity and health and how has this been reported? Angela will explore this question and other aspects of her research. In addition, she will take us on a tour of the darker side of the origins of the statistical techniques we teach our students today.

We hope you will leave enlightened and with increased confidence to tackle challenging contexts in the classroom.
