The Multi-Faceted Scientific Challenges of Liquid Crystal Research: a Journey in Mathematics and Physics 

Dra. Apala Majumdar

Apala Majumdar is a world-leading expert in the mathematics and modelling of liquid crystals and their applications. She is Full Professor of Applied Mathematics at the University of Strathclyde. She received her PhD in applied mathematics from the University of Bristol in 2006, where she was also a CASE student with Hewlett Packard laboratories. She worked in Oxford as a research fellow, was appointed as a faculty member at the University of Bath in 2012 and moved to Strathclyde in 2019. Apala’s research programme is strongly interdisciplinary and her scientific achievements and service to the community have been recognised by several national prizes – a London Mathematical Society Anne Bennett Prize in 2015, two prizes from the British Liquid Crystal Society in 2012 and 2020 respectively, an Academic Leader award from the FDM Everywoman in Technology awards and a Suffrage Science Award for inspirational women in STEM in 2020. Apala has worked extensively with researchers around the world – UK, Europe, Asia, North and South America, and has recently been appointed Associate Dean for International Research for the Faculty of Science at the University of Strathclyde.
