Leadership, service etc.


I am the Chair of WIMSIG, which is the Women in Mathematics Special Interest Group of the Australian Mathematics Society. This is a 2-year position (1 February 2021 - 31 January 2023).

The WIMSIG Conference 2021 took place on 1 October 2021, in a hybrid format with some in-person local hubs.

Recent conference organisation

I was a member of the Programme Committee of the 64th annual meeting of the Australian Mathematical Society, which was held online on 8 - 11 December 2020, hosted by the University of New England.

I was the Director of 42ACCMCC, the 42nd Australasian Conference on Combinatorial Mathematics and Combinatorial Computing, which was held at UNSW on 9 - 13 December 2019. I was also one of a group of people who organised CMSA Day, a one-day online event held on 11 December 2020, replacing the postponed meeting 43ACC.

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.

Editorial Duties

I am an Editor-in-Chief of the Electronic Journal of Combinatorics. (Earlier, 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 ACC conference series (Australasian Combinatorics Conference), which used to be called ACCMCC (Australasian Conference on Combinatorial Mathematics and Combinatorial Computing), usually held in December each year. Every 10 years ACC becomes ICC, an International Combinatorics Conference.

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 Promotions Committee for promotions to Level E (2020 - 2022).

I am a member of the School's Executive Committee and the School's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Committee.

I was a member of the Faculty of Science's Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Working Group from May 2017 - July 2019.

I am a member of the Ally@UNSW Network.

Girls Do The Maths

The School of Mathematics and Statistics runs an annual Girls Do The Maths workshop. The 2021 workshop took place on Thursday 10 June at UNSW (in person) and Thursday 17 June (online).

The Girls Do The Maths workshops are for high school students in Years 10, 11 and 12 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.

Online Professional Development course for high school teachers:
Networks and Paths

I developed an online professional development course Networks and Paths for high school teachers, to cover the content in the new syllabus on Networks and Paths, Year 12 Standard Mathematics Topic MS-N1. This course now runs quarterly on the OpenLearning platform and is accredited by NESA.

The four videos used in the course are also available on YouTube:
