Veronika Irvine holds a Master of Applied Mathematics degree from the University of Waterloo and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in Computer Science at the University of Victoria under the supervision of Frank Ruskey. She has also been a lacemaker for over 35 years. For her Ph.D. research, Veronika applies ideas from Computer Theory to explore and expand the techniques used in bobbin lace design. Veronika is also very interested in using computer generated art as a way to explore ideas in math and to develop math skills. She has used this approach in her outreach work with middle and high school students.
