Author of "Mathematics and Sex," Dr. Cresswell spent part of her childhood on a Greek island, and was then schooled in the south of France where she was studying Visual Art. At eighteen she simultaneously discovered the joys of Australia and mathematics. Clio studied mathematics at The University of New South Wales and following a stint as an actuary, returned to university to win the University Medal and complete a PhD. More info here.
She was apparently a great maths tutor and all-round nice person, though.
