Dr Anita Ponsaing
The University of Adelaide
My background is in mathematical physics, specifically statistical mechanics and quantum integrable systems. I did my PhD at the University of Melbourne under the supervision of Jan de Gier, completing in 2011. After this I spent three years doing research postdocs in Geneva and Paris. During this time I learnt some basic French, learnt to ski, and visited the Large Hadron Collider (as a tourist).
I have a strong interest in maths education, and helping others see the beauty in maths. I also enjoy computer games, playing piano, programming, and birdwatching, in decreasing order of experience.
