Whenever we want to make an announcement, offer a brief point of view, or just celebrate an achievement, we write a short news summary. Unlike Perspectives, which are full-length essays, pieces in News are 200 words—though they can be the first step to Perspectives or Principles.
The London Institute is establishing an annual prize of £500 for the best short paper in theoretical research written by one of its members.
As our new science writer, Madeleine Hall will help us to communicate our discoveries, share our joy in insight and promote our mission.
Prof. Ilya Shkredov is our inaugural Arnold Fellow. He works on additive combinatorics, number theory and combinatorial ergodic theory.
Dr Alexander Ochirov is our inaugural Landau Research Fellow. He works on scattering amplitudes in quantum field theory and higher spins.
We are pleased to welcome Alana Ker Mercer, who, as our new coordinator, will orchestrate the efficient running of the organisation.
Autumn board meeting
At our autumn meeting, we discussed the launch of two new Fellowship programmes, our new rooms at the Royal Institution and upcoming events.
Space for science
We’ve doubled our space at the Royal Institution. Our new rooms include Faraday's drawing room and the guest room for Christmas Lecturers.
Cell programming portal
The London Institute is creating a portal that connects bit.bio and theorists to accelerate research on the mathematics of cell programming.
The power of presence
One reason we outperform other research organisations is that everyone turns up for work, which makes us more creative, agile and aligned.
To better benchmark research at the London Institute, we weight our published papers by the fraction of authors that are at the Institute.
Webby Award Nominee
Our website has been nominated for the best science website at the Webby Awards—hailed the “internet’s highest honor” by The New York Times.
Stone on stone
In our updated landing page, we let our blackboards do the talking: each blackboard illustrates a key concept from one of our best papers.
Winter board meeting
At its winter meeting, our Board discusses our research output, endowment with Caltech, core funding and supporting the Royal Institution.
Inaugural Junior Fellow
Dr Forrest Sheldon is the London Institute’s inaugural Junior Fellow, setting a high standard for our new programme of Junior Fellows.
Measure what matters
We benchmark the London Institute by the quality of our published research papers, which we are increasing each year by a factor of √2.
Autumn board meeting
At its autumn meeting, our Board discusses our application for core funding, a new Fellow, upcoming events and planning our first endowment.
Summer board meeting
At its summer meeting, our board meets our new finance director and discusses fundraising, core funding, research output and 23 challenges.
