The Graham Hoare prize is awarded annually to Early Career Mathematicians for a brilliant Mathematics Today article. The prize was named after Graham Hoare for his valuable contribution to the IMA and the wider mathematics community, especially in encouraging young mathematicians.

Robyn’s article, titled ‘Could Mathematics Be Big at the Box Office?’ looks at using mathematics to predict the next blockbuster by taking a tour through forecasting models that can be applied to box office revenue prediction.

Commenting on the award, Robyn said, “I cannot tell you how delighted I am to have been awarded the Graham Hoare Prize for 2021! I am so thankful to the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications for selecting my article. I really hope others enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it - including an E.T. reference in an article about maths is definitely a career highlight!”
