About the presenter

Arun Ram grew up in a small town in New Mexico, USA – leaving for Boston to attend MIT. After deciding that he needed a lifestyle which enabled him to travel and sit in coffee shops - he found it best to get a PhD in Mathematics! After obtaining his PhD from University of California San Diego, he held a sequence of junior positions before landing at University of Wisconsin in 1999. In 2008 he moved to University of Melbourne where the mathematics, the weather and the city suit him well. His passions are beauty, music, languages, cultures and people.
