18 June 2021

The School of Mathematics is delighted to announce that Dr Nina Snaith and Dr Oleksiy Klurman have won awards at this year’s Bristol Teaching Awards

The Bristol Teaching Awards (BTAs) recognise and celebrate those staff who have made an outstanding contribution to teaching, the provision of support for students, and enhancing the student learning experience.

Student and staff were invited to nominate individuals or teams in a range of award categories including: Outstanding Personal Tutoring Award, Inspiring and Innovative Teaching Award, Outstanding Support Award, Outstanding Research Supervision Award and the Vice Chancellors Award for Education.

Nina was named the winner of the Outstanding Research Supervision Award. On receiving the award she said:

"I am honoured to have received this award because supervising graduate students is a part of my job that I really love. But the credit ultimately has to go to my graduate students - they call themselves the Snaith Squad - who are lovely and supportive of each other and are a delight to work with."

Okeksiy was named winner of the Inspiring and Innovative Teaching Award for the Faculty of Science. On receiving the award he said:

“With all the recordings we have made this year it almost feels like winning a Grammy! I am deeply honoured and very grateful to all our wonderful students and colleagues who helped me to stay motivated during such an unusual academic year. “It was an extremely gratifying experience to watch students being so engaged, dedicated and active. I am very happy that at least part of my passion for math and teaching could penetrate the Zoom screen.”

We would like to extend our congratulations to everyone who was shortlisted, and thank you to everyone who took part in nominating.
