Data Analysis Australia is the leading strategic information consultancy in Australia. Our exceptional skills in mathematics, statistics and data management provide a strong background for work that is often used for strategic decision making purposes. Our reputation has been built on our ability to provide workable solutions to difficult problems across all industries.
The strength of Data Analysis Australia lies in our flexible approach to integrating the above areas of expertise to provide cost effective and applicable solutions for clients.
Congratulations to our Director, Professor Cheryl Praeger, whose outstanding contributions to the mathematical sciences over an extended period were recognised by the London Mathematical Society with an award of Honorary Membership, and by the Australian Mathematical Society with the George Szekeres Medal. Cheryl was also recently inducted into the WA Women’s Hall of Fame in recognition of her education of women in the mathematical sciences.
Congratulations also to Consultant Statistician, Taryn Major, who recently qualified for the award of Master of Biostatistics at Macquarie University. As part of her studies, Taryn conducted a research project into the health outcomes of infants born to Western Australian mothers with serious mental health issues. Taryn always completes work at Data Analysis Australia to a high quality so it is no surprise to see the outstanding results she received for her Masters, well done Taryn!
Panels and Presentations
In April, the WA chapter of the Institute of Analytics Professionals Australia (IAPA) ran a panel session with a focus on Data Science in Western Australia. John Henstridge was one of four invited panel members who provided IAPA members with insights into the current challenges and opportunities facing data scientists.
John also presented at the recent Operations Research practitioners forum, providing a statistician’s perspective of the field. The forum was also attended by Anna Munday and Donna Hill, both of whom are members of the Australian Society for Operations Research.
Donna Hill was invited to speak at a seminar organised by the Australian Institute of Traffic Planning & Management WA Branch Transport Modellers’ Group. The theme of the seminar was Behavioural Surveys for Transport Modelling, and Donna’s presentation “Perth’s Next Household Travel Survey” discussed some of the key challenges involved in conducting a household travel survey.
Congratulations and best wishes to Emma Smith on her engagement to her long-term partner, Jarrod, who proposed in a romantic setting atop a snow-covered mountain near Lake Tahoe, USA.
We extend a warm welcome to Chris Wake, our new Systems Administrator. Chris has over ten years’ experience and is responsible for providing support in both the delivery of IT solutions for our clients and maintaining the Data Analysis Australia network.
