Professor Phil Pollett
Professor of Mathematics, Node Leader, Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (ACEMS)
Professor Pollett holds an honours degree in Applied Mathematics from the University of Adelaide and a PhD degree in Applied Probability from the University of Cambridge. His research is recognized internationally for significant contributions to Markov process theory, and mathematical modelling of complex systems in population biology, ecology, chemical kinetics and telecommunications. This research has been supported by twelve ARC Discovery/Linkage grants. Additionally, he was a Chief Investigator and node leader within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems (2003-2014), and is presently a Chief Investigator and node leader within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers (2014-2020). In 1993 he was awarded the Moran Medal by the Australian Academy of Science for distinguished research in applied probability.
