WEEK 8 — Associate Professor Roslyn Hickson

WEEK 8 — Associate Professor Roslyn Hickson

Associate Professor Roslyn Hickson is an applied mathematician with a focus on solving real world problems by using mathematical modelling of infectious diseases, with a focus on emerging and neglected tropical diseases. Roslyn uses mathematics to describe how diseases, such as the flu, are transmitted through populations so we can better control them. Other research by Roslyn has been on invasive weed spread using differential equations and computational methods.

Roslyn’s research has informed informs policy and practice around the world, including working with the World Health Organization, the Taiwan Centers for Disease Control and IBM Australia.

Join us to hear about Roslyn’s journey to becoming a mathematician.
