Cheryl Praeger, éminente mathématicienne australienne, docteur Honoris Causa de l’ULB en 2005, vient d’être désignée Scientifique de l’année 2009. Elle a des contacts dans le monde entier : en Asie, en Angleterre, en Belgique.
Science and Innovation Minister Troy Buswell today announced Winthrop Professor Cheryl Praeger as Scientist of the Year at the 2009 Western Australian Science Awards.
Professor Praeger, WA’s most highly-cited pure mathematician, leads a major research team in Group Theory and Combinatorics at The University of Western Australia.
Mr Buswell said Professor Praeger was a leading international researcher, renowned for her works in group theory, algebraic graph theory and combinatorics.
Professor Praeger’s work has resulted in findings that have led to new thought being adopted by mathematicians worldwide, he said.
I would like to congratulate her and all the winners of the Western Australian Science Awards for their strong contribution and commitment to advancing science in WA.
These awards help to promote science research, development and facilitation by recognising and rewarding the achievements of the State’s scientists, researchers, science teachers and facilitators of science outreach programs.
