My work picture

I have funding for a 3-year PhD stipend connected with the grant "A new model for random discrete structures: distributions, counting and sampling". If you are interested please email me. International students will also need to apply for an IPRS through UNSW, in order to be considered for a Tuition Fee Scholarship (which will, perhaps not surprisingly, cover the tuition fees: the stipend covers living allowance).


Biography

I was an undergraduate at the University of Queensland, in Brisbane, Australia, where I completed a Bachelor of Science followed by an M.Sc. by research, supervised by Anne Street. My doctoral research was performed at the Mathematical Institute, University of Oxford, under the supervision of Peter Neumann.

My first postdoctoral position was held at the School of Computer Studies (now the School of Computing) of the University of Leeds. I worked with Martin Dyer on the analysis combinatorial Markov chains and related questions of computational complexity. Then I moved back to Australia to take up an Australian Research Council Postdoctoral Fellowship at the Mathematics Department of the University of Melbourne. I worked with Nick Wormald on the study of random regular graphs.

In January 2003 I joined the School of Mathematics and Statistics of the UNSW Australia (the University of New South Wales), where I am a member of the Combinatorics research group. I frequently collaborate with Brendan McKay from the Australian National University, mostly on problems in asymptotic enumeration.

I am a Managing Editor of the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics and a member of the Council of the Combinatorial Mathematics Society of Australasia. I was awarded the 2015 Christopher Heyde Medal in Pure Mathematics by the Australian Academy of Science.
