It is with sadness, but warm wishes for her future, that we announce the retirement of Carole Lefort, who has provided unfaltering support to all aspects of our company over the past 22 years. Having undertaken a variety of important roles including Office Manager, Accounts Manager and Personal Assistant to the Managing Director, Carole’s leaving marks the end of an era for Data Analysis Australia. We are indebted to her for her commitment to the company and for assisting us to our present position in the industry. Her kind and helpful presence will be greatly missed but the wonderful community that she helped establish at Data Analysis Australia will live on. We hope she thoroughly enjoys this new phase of life.
Congratulations to Jennifer Bramwell who was promoted from Graduate Consultant Statistician to Consultant Statistician in June. Jennifer joined Data Analysis Australia in November 2012 and has been a valuable team member on many projects since. Jennifer has been involved in several surveys in transportation and liquor licensing as well as the analysis of road safety data. Jennifer is always keen to take on new projects and enjoys the variety of our work.
Data Analysis Australia would like to extend a warm welcome to two new staff members, Lisa Dinis and Sarah Stone. Lisa is an experienced statistician who has worked in both the United Kingdom and Australia in scientific and official statistics roles. Lisa has joined the team part-time as a Consultant Statistician and we look forward to the added experience she brings to our team. Sarah recently completed her studies at Curtin University and has commenced her career with us as a Graduate Statistician.
We are pleased to welcome back Consultant Statistician Mai Tanimoto on a part-time basis after a year's parental leave, and look forward to her renewed involvement in a range of projects. Mai has had over two years' experience with Data Analysis Australia, working on tourism data, water consumption, agriculture, defence, and library surveys, and, prior to that, five years as a fisheries population modeller.
Congratulations to Emma Smith, Senior Consultant Statistician, who was recently awarded her PhD from Curtin University, Western Australia. Emma’s thesis, “Deterministic Modelling of Whole-Body Sheep Metabolism”, involved complex simulations and optimisation, an area very relevant to her work at Data Analysis Australia. We all look forward to celebrating when Emma graduates in early September.
Data Analysis Australia consultants John Henstridge, Anna Munday, John Dickson, Yuichi Yano and Alethea Rea attended and presented at the 2014 Australian Statistical Conference. The Conference, organised by the Statistical Society of Australia, Inc. (SSAI) in conjunction with the Institute of Mathematical Statistics (IMS) Annual meeting, was held in Sydney in July. Data Analysis Australia was also a proud sponsor of the Young Statistician’s dinner at the event.

Data Analysis Australia supports a number of fundraising events during the year, with recent causes including Lifeline’s Stress Down Day where staff enjoyed the opportunity to wear slippers to work in an effort to “stress down”, and Jeans for Genes day supporting Children’s Medical Research Institute’s. A couple of particularly tasty events in the office were the Big Cake Bake for the Red Cross and cupcake day for RSPCA.
