Edwards, Maureen Associate Professor

Associate Professor

  • Faculty of Engineering and Information Sciences
  • School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics

Research Overview


  • Dr Maureen Edwards is a senior lecturer in the School of Mathematics and Applied Statistics.

    Dr Edwards completed a PhD in Applied Mathematics from the University of Wollongong in 1997, and has been a supervisor for four completed PhD students in various Applied Mathematics topics.

    Broad areas of research:

    applied mathematics, with particular interest in developing and solving mathematical models, often involving nonlinear partial differential equations motivated by biological invasion and population dynamics;

    the application of Lie symmetry techniques to classes of nonlinear differential equations, in particular nonlinear reaction-diffusion equations.
