For the second time in less than a year, ACEMS Deputy Director Kerrie Mengersen is heading to the Amazon jungle in her efforts to combine mathematics and statistics with the latest virtual reality technology to try to protect and save the jaguar population.
When you type on your computer, are you worried about fingerprints? Not on your keyboard, but across the internet? That’s because your computer could be leaving behind “browser fingerprints” at every place you visit on the internet.
ACEMS is proud to announce that Associate Investigator Dr Joshua Ross has won the 2016 JH Michell Medal at this year’s Australian and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ANZIAM) Conference.
ACEMS would like to congratulate three of its Associate Investigators, Dr Andrew Black (The University of Adelaide), Dr Chris Drovandi (QUT) and Dr Michael Wheeler (The University of Melbourne). The Australian Research Council (ARC) picked all three to receive a Discovery Early Career Research Award (DECRA).
Members of the QUT Node for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS) gathered for a retreat to mark the end of the Centre’s first year. Highlighting the retreat was a speech from Queensland’s Chief Scientist, Dr Geoff Garrett.
