Spotlight on...

Third year BCom/BSc (Advanced Mathematics) student, Dorothy Cheung, speaks about her experiences studying maths at UNSW, her Girls Do The Maths Scholarship, and her advice for young girls who are interested in mathematics.

A species distribution model uses mathematics to describe how environmental variables can affect the presence of a certain species of animal or plant.  An interdisciplinary group of researchers at UNSW use statistics, mathematical computation and ecology to create finely-tuned species distribution models.These models can be used to predict locations where a rare species might be found, or to help us to understand the potential threats to a species due to urban encroachment or climate change.
