Online Short Seminars: Dan Giles on Tsunami Warning Tools

Online Short Seminars: Dan Giles on Tsunami Warning Tools

My first task as the newly elected Vice President of the SIAM-IMA Dublin area student chapter was to produce a short video detailing my research. My research focuses on the development of operational tools for tsunami warning centres. As this video was aimed at introducing my research to a wide audience, it simply provides a brief introduction. So if you would like to learn more about the fascinating dynamics of tsunamis and how warning centres try to mitigate their damages, please check out the quick 4 min video here:

Making this short video doubled as great practice for the Flash Talk series run by UCD's Earth Institute. This series was organised to mark the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.  I gave a quick 2 min talk detailing my research to a wide audience from across UCD and I was fortunate enough to win the audience prize! I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved in organising this event. It was a great way to see the huge scope of research which is carried out within the Earth Institute.

Finally, if you are undergraduate/postgraduate applied mathematician in the Dublin area and would like to get involved with the student chapter please check out our new website:
