Premium-Inhalt. Harvard Professor Dr Louise Ryan, newly appointed Chief of Mathematical and Information Sciences at the CSIRO, will use her new role to champion increased funding for the mathematical sciences in Australia, which she says are essential for the development of computer-based research across the board. "In recent years, funding has been cut to support the quantitative sciences. And I think it's important to have a voice and say 'hey, this is important'," she said. "This is critical, it's fundamental, it underlies every other field of science and you can't cut corners by cutting funding for mathematical research and training." A former Chair of Biostatistics at the prestigious Harvard University in Boston, Dr. Ryan will now oversee mathematical and statistical scientists at the CSIRO working on applications ranging from agriculture, light metal production, and environmental modelling to genetics, supercomputing, financial risk and transport logistics. Her division provides mathematical and statistical modelling to support all kinds of important national projects, including the ambitious "Square Kilometre Array", a massive radio telescope that aims to discover more about the origins of the universe, widely believed to have been brought about by the "Big Bang". According to Dr. Ryan, this is a project "which involves incredible amounts of data-crunching and information synthesis and processing". Other parts of her division focus on mathematical techniques in the area of computational fluid dynamics, a branch of science involving the assessment of water-related risks that works by using computers to simulate what would happen if, for example, a dam were to break or an unusually large wave were to strike one of the country's off-shore oil rigs. "So you need lots of very sophisticated mathematical, quantitative techniques to characterise these situations and then you need the very sophisticated computing platforms to be able to run these simulations and see what happens under these varying scenarios... "We also have other people who are looking at complex genomics data trying to understand which parts of the millions of locations on the human genome might be the ones that make people susceptible to getting, say, colon cancer or certain kinds of disease."
