Recent conference organisation

I am one of the organisers of 42ACCMCC, to be held on 9 - 13 December 2019. More details to follow (eventually!).

I was one of the organisers of the Women in Mathematics Special Interest Group (WIMSIG) Conference, a Celebration of Women in the Mathematical Sciences, which was held at the University of South Australia on 24 - 26 September 2017. This was the first such conference of its kind in Australia, and attracted 190 participants. All research talks were given by women.

I was one of the organisers of the workshop Approximate Counting, Markov chains and Phase Transitions which was held at the Simons Institute Berkeley, on 22 - 26 February 2016 as part of the program Counting Complexity and Phase Transitions which took place at the Simons Institute from January to May 2016.

I was on the Programme Committee for the 2015 Annual Meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society, held at Flinders University, Adelaide in September/October 2015.

I was Director of the 36th Australasian Conference on Combinatorial Mathematics and Combinatorial Computing (36ACCMCC), which was held at UNSW on 10 - 14 December 2012.

I was on the Programme Committee for the 22nd Annual ACM-SIAM Symposium on Discrete Algorithms (SODA), which was held in San Francisco on 22 - 25 January 2011.

Editorial Duties

I am an Editor-in-Chief of the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics. (Prior to that, I was Managing Editor.) I am a member of the Editorial Board of The Australasian Journal of Combinatorics and a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of Special Matrices.

Membership of professional societies

I am a member of the Combinatorial Mathematics Society of Australasia (CMSA) . The CMSA organise the annual ACCMCC conference series (Australasian Conferences on Combinatorial Mathematics and Combinatorial Computing), usually held in December each year. Every 10 years ACCMCC becomes ICC, an International Combinatorics Conference. This year the 5th International Combinatorics Conference (5ICC) will be held at Monash University on 4 - 9 December 2017.

The CMSA publish the Australasian Journal of Combinatorics, which is a "Diamond Open Access" all-electronic journal (free for authors, free to read).

I am also a member of the Australian Mathematical Society and the Institute of Combinatorics and its Applications.

School and University committees and roles

I am a member of the Faculty of Science's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group, founded in 2017.

I was a member of the University Promotions Committee for promotions to level D (2015 - 2017). Before that, I served on the Faculty Promotions Committee for promotions to level C in 2013 and 2014.

I am a member of the School's Executive Committee and the School's Equity and Opportunity Committee.

I am a member of the Ally@UNSW Network.

Girls Do The Maths

I am one of the organisers of the School of Mathematics and Statistics annual Girls Do The Maths workshops. The workshop is held on the third Friday in May each year. The next workshop will be held on Friday 18 May 2018.

The Girls Do The Maths workshops are for female high school students in Years 11 and 12 (sometimes, year 10) who are interested in mathematics and would like to know more about where the study of mathematics and statistics can take them. Our workshop participants experience a packed program with guest speakers, information sessions, a campus tour and input from some current UNSW mathematics and statistics students.
