Raul Tempone (KAUST) and Alvaro Moraes (KAUST) will give a course on simulation and inference of stochastic reaction networks at KTH in June. Take a look on the course website for more info.

Take a look at the short talks held at KTH on Wednesday 28 May 2014 for the *Computational Mathematics Circus*.

I'm presently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the University of Massachusetts Amherst in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics where I'm working with Professors Markos Katsoulakis and Luc Rey-Bellet. Previously, I was a Göran Gustafsson Postdoctoral Fellow in the Mathematics Department at KTH in Stockholm where I worked with Professor Anders Szepessy in the Numerical Analysis Group. I conducted my PhD studies under the supervision of Professor István Gyöngy, head of the research group in Probability and Stochastic Analysis, in the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Edinburgh. My research concerns uncertainty quantification and the analysis of numerical schemes for SPDE, understood in a broad sense.

During the 2010/2011 Edinburgh academic year I organized the School of Mathematic's PG Colloquium and the previous year I served as one of the two elected postgraduate representatives in the Graduate School.

I have a lovely wife and a son. Originally from Philadelphia, I graduated with a BA in Mathematics from the University of Pennsylvania in 2008 where I held a Mayor's Scholarship. I'm very thankful for the help and support I received from the PENNCAP office during my studies. While attending Penn I worked for the Free Library of Philadelphia where I assisted the Office of Public Service Support in collecting data on outreach programs and managing grants. I also presented science and technology literacy programs. I also helped run Penn's Science and Technology Wing and Pi Mu Epsilon, the undergraduate mathematics society.
