Dr Harry Bartlett is a lecturer in the School of Mathematical Sciences at Queensland University of Technology.
He has extensive teaching experience with both small and large classes and with students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
His research efforts are focused in cryptography and associated areas such as finite mathematics and his service roles include Health and Safety responsibilities and membership of the faculty equity committee.
Dr Bartlett has extensive teaching experience with both small and large classes and with students from a diverse range of backgrounds.
In particular, he has taught a variety of introductory level units in statistics, calculus, linear algebra and other topics for students enrolled in courses as diverse as mathematics, engineering, science, health sciences and computing, with class sizes up to 650 students.
For many years, he taught introductory statistics units for engineering students in distinct disciplines (mechanical, civil and electrical engineering; also surveying); more recently, he has taught the amalgamated version of this unit to the entire engineering cohort, and then an equivalent unit to a mixed class of mathematics students and engineering students. He has also taught more specialist units in topics such as number theory, coding theory and graph theory and related topics in finite mathematics.
In consultation with relevant stakeholders, Dr Bartlett has developed unit outlines and collated topic materials for several new units. These include service units providing introductory mathematics and statistics skills to science students, to property management students and, more recently, to information technology students, as well as the Graph Theory section of a combined unit on graph theory and coding theory for mathematics students.
Dr Bartlett has experience in the following areas in addition to his regular teaching, research and research supervision duties.
Dr Bartlett worked for 10 years as a graduate mechanical engineer before returning to university to undertake his post-graduate studies. This background has helped him to relate effectively to students from engineering and other practice-based courses.
Dr Bartlett has reviewed technical papers for several conferences and journals in the field of cryptography, including the Australasian Conference on Information Security and Privacy (ACISP) and the Journal of Mathematical Cryptology. He is also a statistical reviewer for the Australian Medical Journal.
For several years, Dr Bartlett provided regular statistical consultancy services to staff proposing or undertaking research projects at the Prince Charles Hospital in Brisbane. He has also undertaken other minor consultancies relating to statistical and mathematical topics.
