Dr. Megan Dewar
I lead the Tutte Institute for Mathematics and Computing (TIMC). TIMC's mission is to deliver research results having an impact on the most important scientific challenges facing the Canadian and 5-eyes security and intelligence communities. Our main areas of research are cryptography and data science.
Current research and/or projects
While much of the research conducted at TIMC is classified, I maintain some external academic research projects in combinatorics, specifically graph theory and design theory. In particular, I'm interested in questions of connectivity in hypergraphs and in ordering the blocks of designs.
Professional activities / interests
I am chair of the Canadian Mathematical Society Nominating Committee and sit on the Board of Directors.
