University of Manchester Committee

Eleanor Johnstone (she/her) and Bindu Vekaria (she/her) are our Piscopia representatives at the University of Manchester and co-founders of our Manchester node. Eleanor also acts as our contact for a local mentoring scheme that connects current PhD students at the University of Manchester with female and minority gender maths undergraduate students who are considering further study.

Sign up for their first virtual event on Wednesday, 4 November from 2-3pm for women and non-binary students at the University of Manchester via eventbrite:

Hi, I’m Bindu (@Bindu_Vekaria), a 4th year PhD student between the department of Mathematics and the Centre for Health Informatics at the University of Manchester. My research is funded by the MRC and looks at developing flexible clinical prediction models. Outside of work I spend my time reading, doing yoga and recently I’ve taken up crocheting!
