We proudly congratulate Director Prof. Cheryl Praeger on her recent achievements which include becoming the first woman to be awarded the Australian Mathematical Society’s George Szekeres Medal as well as being inducted into the WA Women's Hall of Fame at Government House. These achievements recognise Cheryl's outstanding contributions to the mathematical sciences over an extended period and to the education of females in a field which was once predominantly males. Many well-deserved congratulations to Cheryl!
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!
