Biographies

Garth Gaudry was a mathematician whose main area of research was harmonic analysis, with particular emphasis on singular integrals, Fourier multipliers, and analysis on Lie groups. Often this involved extensive collaborations with other mathematicians. With Robert Edwards he wrote , which became highly influential in the field. Gaudry held mathematics chairs at both Flinders University and the University of New South Wales where he significantly expanded the courses available. He took a leading role in professional organisations, serving as President of the Australian Mathematical Society and being integral to the establishment of the Australian Mathematical Sciences Council, which ensured the representation of mathematics within the Federation of Australian Scientific and Technical Societies. Gaudry made substantial contributions to policy and curriculum reform at state and national levels. His advocacy for opportunities for engagement with mathematics especially in schools led to him becoming inaugural Director of the International Centre of Excellence for Education in Mathematics.
