Clio Cresswell

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.

I went to UNSW, doing engineering and science. I didn't have Clio as a tutor, but a bunch of friends of mine did. The term "a clio" has since become part of our vocabulary. It means more or less the same as a monet...

She was apparently a great maths tutor and all-round nice person, though.
Well she is infact my maths lecturer now and she's ok i guess.
