Profile

Matthew Williams is the Science Division’s Biometrician. He completed a Bachelor of Science Degree at the University of Western Australia in 1981, with majors in mathematics and botany, a graduate diploma in computing studies at Murdoch University in 1994, and a Ph D in 2009. As the Divisional biometrician, he is responsible for ensuring efficient experimental design and analysis, and for maintaining high standards of research planning. He also has a research interest in the conservation of Western Australia’s butterflies, particularly those of the south west.
