I am very grateful to have received support from the James Pantyfedwen Foundation. This enabled me to complete a PhD in mathematics at Cardiff University. My PhD thesis entitled Distances to lattice points in rational polyhedra focused on integer optimisation. This mathematical discipline looks at optimisation or feasibility problems where some (or all) of the variables are restricted to be integers. Without the help provided by the Foundation, I highly doubt that I would have been able to complete the PhD during the coronavirus pandemic.  

I recently become an LSE Fellow in Mathematics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). My role at the LSE involves both developing and teaching a new undergraduate course and conducting further academic research. I will be forever thankful for the difference the Foundation made in supporting my early career.
