12:00 - SEMINAR - Bayliss Seminar Series : Protein engineering and functional studies of enzymes used for diverse applications More Information

16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : It's a wonderful life! - Reflections on the career of a mathematician More Information
Followed by Cheese and wine in Maths Common Room

Abstract: We all have our doubts off and on if life is really so wonderful. But that is not what I want to address here. Watching the Jimmy Stewart movie with this title, there was one scene which captured my imagination: the Guardian Angel shows George Bailey how the world would have been without him. Personally, I never had much need to know how the world would have looked without me. However, all other things equal, how would life have been if I had lived in a different time and place, would be something of interest to me! This is the stuff of movies and fairy tales. But at least it is possible to play this as an intellectual game. I was born and raised in Germany before WW II. After getting my Ph.D. in 1962, I married a fellow mathematician and we immigrated to the US one year later, where we taught at a university until our retirements, first at Ohio State and then at Binghamton University. What would life have been if I stayed in Germany, did not get married, were born fifty or one hundred years earlier, or were born in another country? Looking at actual and potential role models over the centuries helped me answer some of these questions. In essence, it got me back to the roots of what shaped my life.

18:45 - FREE LECTURE - RACI Bayliss Youth Lecture 2020 : Shining a light on crime: Applications of spectroscopy to forensic science Website | More Information
Paint, cosmetics, ink. All of these can be forms of forensic evidence that can help detectives to make links between individuals, objects and locations – a critically important part of a criminal investigation. But how to get the most useful information from these types of evidence? This is where chemistry plays an essential role. Join Dr Georgina Sauzier as she explores a key tool of analytical chemistry and how it can be used for analysis of forensic evidence.

Tickets are free but you must register at https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/raci-bayliss-lecture-2020-shining-a-light-on-crime-uwa-tickets-86459128581

16:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - Mathematics and Statistics Colloquium : An invitation to finite geometry Website | More Information
Finite geometry involves the study of finitely many objects -- points, lines, planes, etc -- in analogy with classical geometric language and concepts. The exciting aspect of finite geometry is that it often shares properties of the usual Euclidean geometry, yet the finite-ness of the geometry enables us to exchange information with cognate disciplines such as coding theory, design theory, and finite group theory. This talk is an introduction to the world of finite geometry.

Thursday 21
16:00 - SEMINAR - Trash to Treasure: Minimising the environmental impacts of mine wastes and byproducts Website | More Information
Did you know over 7 billion tonnes of tailings and 56 billion tonnes of waste rock are produced worldwide each year during mining and extractive processes.

Dr Talitha Santini will take you on a visual journey to explain the generation of tailings and waste rock, explore the challenges for remediation and closure of mine sites, and present the promising pathways being explored by researchers at UWA for improved remediation and reuse of these materials.
Thursday 28
13:30 - WORKSHOP - Google for Researchers Website | More Information
Everyone Googles... but do you really know how to get the best out of Google for your research? This hands-on workshop will demonstrate the best tips and tricks to use Google to find scholarly material.

This event will be run in Zoom.

16:00 - PUBLIC TALK - Science Exchange Series - The Poetry of Science Website | More Information
Poetry and science might be seen by many people to be rather odd bedfellows. However, poetry offers a powerful tool through which to bring together different audiences, and to give voice to those audiences that are often underserved and underheard by science.

Dr Sam Illingworth will introduce you to how poetry can be used to develop dialogue between scientists and non-scientists, leading to creative solutions to developing inclusive research governance for all.
