Episode 22: Australian Maths Tour

Every two years, the Australian Mathematical Society (AustMS), with support from the Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute (AMSI), organises a lecture series.

It’s called the Mahler Lecture series, where a prominent mathematician tours Australian universities, giving lectures for audiences at a variety of levels.

This year’s guest lecturer is Dr Holly Krieger from the University of Cambridge, where she is the Corfield lecturer in mathematics as well as a Fellow at Murray Edwards College. Before that, she was at MIT.

Dr Krieger is very active in her outreach activities and promoting mathematics to female students and young researchers. In addition, her mathematics videos with Numberphile have millions of views on YouTube.

In this episode, Dr Krieger talks about her research, her outreach, and her Australian maths tour.
