From business to biology, Professor Kerry Landman has taken her love for applied mathematics and made a huge impact.
For some 40-years, she has devoted her career to cross-disciplinary research to help solve a wide range of problems.
In 2014, Kerry was awarded the ANZIAM medal – the premier medal of the Australia and New Zealand Industrial and Applied Mathematics Society. In 2019, the Australian Academy of Science named her a fellow of the Academy.
In 2007, Kerry became the first female mathematics professor at The University of Melbourne. Now, recently retired from the university, she is not slowing down.
In this podcast, Kerry talks about her career in applied mathematics, some of the people who have impacted her life over the years, the twists and turns when it comes to what her research has focussed on, and what she's doing now in retirement to make a difference.
