Saving ENDANGERED Snails / APPLIED VS PURE MATH(S)?-Meet A Mathematician (008): Harry Moyse

Harry Moyse is a Research Fellow at Warwick University in England specializing in interdisciplinary and applied mathematics. He received his Ph.D. in Mathematical Biochemistry in 2019 under the supervision of Neil Evans.

Harry’s research interests include mathematical and biochemical tools for improving transplant outcomes, machine learning applied to text datasets, and wider applications of mathematics and machine learning techniques in protein biochemistry. He has worked with the New Zealand Department of Conservation to stop the extinction of the land snail Powelliphanta Augusta, is the cofounder of an online software retail company called Moonbox Software, and currently works for the Institute for Advanced Teaching and Learning at the University of Warwick to produce interdisciplinary and applied maths online teaching materials.

We talk about the differences between Pure and Applied Math(s) and Mathematicians, His research saving an endangered species of snails in New Zealand, machine-learning on text datasets, and much more!

We would like to thank Harry for being on our show "Meet a Mathematician" and for sharing his stories and perspective with us!
