Jessica Enright

Last name

Jess Enright is a lecturer researching mathematical and computational methods to understand and optimise networks, with a focus on agricultural networks. She has recently worked on networks that describe how cattle and sheep move around Britain, as well as how farms contact each other geographically and via wind movement. Her mathematical work on networks attempts to exploit the structural properties of those networks to solve problems that would otherwise be computationally intractable. She is the General Secretary of the Edinburgh Mathematical Society, and enjoys championing the importance of maths to our society as a whole.
