The 4th annual Australian Mathematical Sciences Student Conference is going to be held in Hobart, Tasmania from November 30th until December 2nd 2015. The conference is primarily directed towards Australian postgraduate and honours students from any mathematical science, inclusive of but not limited to applied/pure mathematics, statistics, mathematical physics, oceanography and mathematical biology. The conference brings students together, gives an opportunity for presenting research, facilitates networking, and encourages collaboration within a friendly and informal atmosphere.
Two speakers have been confirmed to date with more yet to be announced:
- Associate Professor Benjamin Burton (School of Mathematics and Physics, University of Queensland). Ben just finished a QEII Fellowship, he has previously worked in the mathematics departments at RMIT University, the University of Melbourne and Oklahoma State University, as well as a three-year stint in the finance industry; and
- Dr. Jaclyn Brown (CSIRO, Tasmania). Jaci is a senior research scientist at CSIRO studying many aspects of climate variability and change in the Tropical Pacific Ocean. Jaci’s PhD was undertaken jointly with the University of NSW and the CSIRO in Hobart, following her PhD Jaci took up a Postdoctoral Associate position at Yale University looking at the mechanical energy of the tropical Pacific. She has now returned to the CSIRO in Hobart as part of the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR).
