Congratulations to Michael Brand, who has won the Mollie Holman Doctoral Medal for the best PhD thesis completed in the Faculty of I.T. at Monash University in 2013. One such medal is awarded in each Faculty, each year, at Monash. He also won the 2013 Faculty of I.T. Doctoral Medal which has criteria for other contributions as well as thesis excellence. The thesis is titled “Computing with Arbitrary and Random Numbers“. Michael’s main supervisor was Graham Farr, and associate supervisor was Ian Wanless. Michael will graduate in May 2014.
Heiko Dietrich is co-organising a session on “Software, algorithms, and applications of computational group theory” at The 4th International Congress on Mathematical Software (ICMS 2014), which is a satellite conference of the International Congress of Mathematicians (ICM 2014).
Congratulations to David Fear, who submitted his MSc thesis entitled “Diagonally Cyclic Equitable Rectangles and Cyclotomic Orthomorphisms” on 31 Jan 2014. David’s primary supervisor was Ian Wanless, associate supervisor was Daniel Horsley, and external supervisor was Tony Evans (Wright State University, USA).
Congratulations to Ian Wanless for his promotion to Professor. Richly deserved!
