Are there parallel universes? Universes in which, rather than reading this article, you are still asleep; in which you are happier, unhappier, richer, poorer, or even dead? The answer is "possibly". It's a controversial claim but one that has won more and more followers over the last few decades.

PhD student Tamara Grossmann tells us about her work on image analysis.

There are several ways in which it can and studies suggest they could be safe and effective.

We celebrate this year's Ada Lovelace day with a selection of podcasts featuring some of the many women we have worked with over the years.

In this final episode of the Women of Mathematics series, we talk to Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb about the collaborative nature of mathematics.

We talk to Holly Krieger about the joys of learning and conversations with colleagues.

We talk to Julia Gog about the buzz of mathematical research, and how maths can help you do good in the world.

We talk to Anne-Christine Davis, the first female maths professor at the University of Cambridge.

We continue our series featuring some of Cambridge's Women of Mathematics, with this 2017 interview with Nilanjana Datta.

Revisit this podcast from 2017, when we spoke to Natalia Berloff, one of the women featured in the Women of Mathematics photo exhibition.

Mathematicians are developing new machine learning techniques to support medical doctors in their work.
