Professor of Discrete Mathematics, University of Ottawa

Mateja Šajna is a Professor of Discrete Mathematics at the University of Ottawa, Canada. She completed her B.Sc.degree in applied mathematics at the University of Ljubljana under the supervision of Bojan Mohar, and her graduate degrees in discrete mathematics at Simon Fraser University under the supervision of the renowned Canadian graph theorist Brian Alspach. Dr. Šajna was a recipient of the 2003 Kirkman Medal by the Institute of Combinatorics and Its Applications.

Research projects: Graph theory and combinatiorial designs, more specifically, cycle decomposition of graphs, the Oberwolfach problem, eulerian properties of hypergraphs and designs and applications of graph theory in science (particularly graph-theoretic analysis of fuzzy cognitive maps).
