Mathematics & Statistics lecturer wins the Lawson-Croft Award
Ciaran O'Sullivan, a lecturer in the School of Mathematics & Statistics, has been awarded the Lawson-Croft Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mathematics and Statistics Support.
The Lawson-Croft Award for Outstanding Achievement in Mathematics and Statistics Support is given to a member of the mathematics and statistics community for outstanding achievement and excellence across a sustained period. It is issued by the three learning support networks for this discipline area in the UK and Ireland: Sigma, the Scottish Mathematics Support Network, and the Irish Mathematics Learning Support Network (IMLSN).
The award recognises Ciaran's immense contribution to Mathematics and Statistics support including his leadership roles in the IMLSN and his work co-ordinating the AIB Mathematics Learning Centre project on the Tallaght campus (funded by the TU Dublin Foundation through the support of AIB). These are only some of Ciaran’s activities in the area of Mathematics support and he becomes the first Irish recipient of this prestigious award.
The award was conferred at the recent CETL-MSOR Conference 2023 which was held at Abacws, Cardiff University. Aisling McGlinchey the Mathematics Engagement Coordinator also presented at this meeting of the learning, teaching and support communities within the disciplines of Mathematics, Statistics and Operational Research.
