Professional and Academic background
Dr Pamela Burrage received her PhD in Mathematics from the University of Queensland (UQ) in 1999, with the thesis “Runge-Kutta methods for Stochastic Differential Equations”.
After being a post-doctoral fellow at UQ in the departments of Mathematics and Civil Engineering, she became an Education/Research Fellow in the Queensland Parallel Supercomputing Foundation (QPSF) (2001 – 2006), developing educational materials and teaching in the areas of Visualisation and High Performance Computing.
A position as Senior Research Fellow at the Institute for Molecular Bioscience (UQ), 2007 – 2009, followed. This was with the QosCosGrid project, modeling and simulating in parallel (on a computational grid) the complex dynamical processes that take place on the plasma membrane of a cell.
She joined QUT as a Senior Lecturer in 2010 in the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, and from 2013 has been in the School of Mathematical Sciences.
According to Google Scholar (as at June 2017), Dr Burrage has 1464 citations with an h-index of 18 and an i10-index of 20.
