17th October 2012: Congratulations to DIT student Andrew Doran-Sherlock who this year was awarded the prestigious Hamilton Award in Mathematics by the Royal Irish Academy (RIA).

The Hamilton Prize is awarded each year to the outstanding student in mathematics in each of nine Higher Education Institutions in Ireland.  The Mathematics Departments in each Institution were invited to submit their nominations and the nine winners were presented with a scroll and a cheque for €1,000 sponsored by Google at an event on the 26th October, 2012.

This event formed part of the RIA’s Hamilton Day activities which celebrate Hamilton’s life and contribution to mathematics.  In addition to the Hamilton Mathematics Awards, the President of Ireland Michael D Higgins was in DIT for this year’s Hamilton Lecture which was delivered by Professor Yuri Manin, of the Max Planck Institute of Mathematics, Bonn.
