Joanna B. Fawcett

I am an LMS Grace Chisholm Young Fellow in the Department of Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics at the University of Cambridge.

I am interested in group theory, permutation group theory, combinatorics, algebraic graph theory, finite geometry and representation theory.

Previously, I was a Research Associate in the Centre for the Mathematics of Symmetry and Computation at The University of Western Australia. I obtained my PhD at the University of Cambridge, working with Jan Saxl on bases of primitive permutation groups.
