Goldberg clinches Webb-Ellis Cup

11 May 2009

Neil GoldbergNeil Goldberg, a second-year student in mathematics, applied mathematics and computer science, has won the inaugural and tightly contested Webb-Ellis Mathematics Trophy Nope, nothing to do with rugby.

Instead, the trophy is the brainchild of two fortuitously-named emeritus professors in the Department of Mathematics and Applied Mathematics, John Webb (right) and George Ellis (left), to encourage students to do the full maths major (pure and applied mathematics).

It aims to recognise achievement in the first year of this joint major. Goldberg, who was presented with a floating trophy and a smaller version to keep, was the top student in both subjects, beating about 700 other students.
