Mathematicians Professors Robyn Owens and Gary Froyland, and statistician Professor Aurore Delaigle are three of the 24 top scientists elected to Fellowship of the Australian Academy of Sciences.
“These scientists were elected by their Academy peers following a rigorous evaluation process,” said Professor John Shine, President of the Academy.
Professor Robyn Owens FAA FTSE is former Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) at the University of Western Australia and an AMSI Board member, recognised for her expertise in mathematics, robotics and computer vision.
Professor Aurore Delaigle FAA is a statistician at the University of Melbourne with research interests in nonparametric estimation, measurement errors, deconvolution problems, group testing problems and functional data analysis.
Professor Gary Froyland FAA is a mathematician at the University of New South Wales, whose research focuses on the interplay of probability and geometry in nonlinear and chaotic dynamical systems, and uses tools from ergodic theory. In 2015 Professor Froyland co-chaired a review of the AMSI Workshop Program.
AMSI extends its congratulations to all newly elected Fellows of the AAS.
