# Dr Clare Dunning

I was a mathematics undergraduate at the University of Bath, spending the
placement
year at CERN in Geneva, and a PhD student in the Centre for Particle Theory
at Durham University. I went to York
University as a temporary
lecturer then held an EPSRC
postdoctoral fellowship there before going to the University of
Queensland as a research associate. I moved to the University of Kent
in 2005 to take up a lectureship. I am now a Reader in
Applied Mathematics in the
School of
Mathematics, Statistics and
Actuarial Science.
### Research Interests

My research interests lie in mathematical physics, essentially all
things integrable including integrable quantum
field theory, classical integrable systems,
quantum spin chains and lattice models, the Rabi model and PT-symmetric quantum
mechanics.
My main area of current research is around a correspondence between
integrable
systems and ordinary differential equations. See the review article
here
or from
the arXiv.

### Publications

A fairly complete list of publications may
be found
here,
in the arXiv,
or in the Kent Academic Repository
KAR.
### Research Projects

See my CV for grants from EPSRC, the Royal Society, the London
Mathematical Society, the Institute of Physics and the University of
Queensland.

### MSOR grant

The workbooks prepared long ago now as part of an
MSOR
grant

Gavin Brown may be found
here.

### Outreach

I am a Stem Ambassador and have been involved in a variety of
outreach activities with young people. Recently this has included
outreach events at schools in Kent and London, Royal Insitution
Masterclasses, general science
activities for Kent & Medway STEMNET
and participating in the East Kent *Big Bang near me *fair. I am
also a volunteer with Inspiring the Future - Inspiring Women.
