The Australian Signals Directorate’s (ASD’s) purpose is to defend Australia from global threats and help advance Australia’s national interests. We do this by mastering technology to inform, protect and disrupt.
ASD’s workforce operates in the slim area between the difficult and the impossible. Solving the toughest problems in foreign signals intelligence, cyber security and offensive cyber operations requires teams of clever, curious people with diverse and complementary skills. Details of our signals intelligence and cyber capabilities are necessarily secret. However, the roles required by those capabilities are not secret. We need a broad range of skills that encompasses analyst and technologist roles, as well as corporate and enabling services.
Our analysts and technologists use their skills in mathematics and computer science to solve cryptological problems, investigate large and complex data sets, and develop new methods of analysing and exploiting data which may utilise Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.
The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia’s national weather, climate and water agency. Its expertise and services assist Australians in dealing with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including drought, floods, fires, storms, tsunami and tropical cyclones. Through regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of the most fundamental and widely used services of government.
The Bureau contributes to national social, economic, cultural and environmental goals by providing observational, meteorological, hydrological and oceanographic services and by undertaking research into science and environment related issues in support of its operations and services.
The Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) is Australia’s central bank and derives its functions and powers from the Reserve Bank Act 1959. Its duty is to contribute to the stability of the currency, full employment, and the economic prosperity and welfare of the Australian people. It does this by conducting monetary policy to meet an agreed medium-term inflation target, working to maintain a strong financial system and efficient payments system, and issuing the nation’s banknotes.
The RBA provides certain banking services as required to the Australian Government and its agencies, and to a number of overseas central banks and official institutions.

I am a geometric analyst specialising in elliptic and parabolic partial differential equations. I possess additional extensive training in differential geometry, calculus of variations, dynamical systems, general relativity and functional analysis. Several of my projects have direct applications to bush fire modelling and biological membrane modelling.
Born in Romania, I have completed my training in both Romania and Germany where I have acquired my interest in curvature flows and applications in the group of Klaus Ecker at Freie University Berlin.
Since 2012 I have joined the staff at Wollongong University, the place that I call now home. I am a proud activist of Equity and Equality in mathematical sciences and since 2018 a DECRA Fellow of the Australian Research Council, studying partition problems through curvature flows and their applications to fire line modelling.
