Upcoming events

In December 2019 I will be organising the "Algebra" session at the 63nd Annual Meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society.

Recommended reading

I highly recommend reading the speech of the Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel AO (November 2018); it highlights the important role of mathematics in education.
My colleague Dr Daniel Mathews and I have written an opinion article on performance targets in academia; it has been published in the Gazette of the Australian Mathematical Society (see publications); a pdf version can be found here.
