Professor Lynne Billard, our 2016 UNSW Women in Mathematics & Statistics Ambassador, has featured in an interview in AMSTAT News. This is the membership magazine of the American Statistical Association, of which Prof Billard was President in 1996.

Prof Billard, who delivered a public lecture at UNSW in May, discusses her early years as a statistician, the workshops she established in the 1980s to help females transition to academic roles, and the the breadth of the world of statistics.
