Two University of Sussex mathematicians have been recognised for their scientific achievements by the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.

At a Day of Science event held on 17 May in Dnipro, Ukraine, Dr Yuliya Kyrychko and Dr Konstantin Blyuss from the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences (MPS) were awarded Letters of Gratitude by the Prydniprovsky Scientific Centre of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and of the Ministry of Education and Science of Ukraine.

This award, which is the highest award that can be given by the Scientific Centre, recognises significant long-standing contributions to a particular branch of science.

The Day of Science is an annual event organised by the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine in its regional scientific centres and major cities.

Professor Anatolii Bulat, the President of the Prydniprovsky Scientific Centre and the Full Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, highlighted in particular the scientific achievements of Dr Kyrychko and Dr Blyuss, as well as their contribution to developing research collaborations with the Prydniprovsky region of Ukraine.

Dr Kyrychko received the award “for her substantial scientific contribution to the development of theory of delayed differential equations and their applications to modelling engineering and biological systems”.

Dr Blyuss was recognised “for his substantial scientific contribution to the development, analysis and practical applications of mathematical models of biological systems, and, in particular, RNA interference”.
