Daniel Mansfield

Dr Daniel Mansfield has been lecturing in the UNSW School of Mathematics and Statistics since 2015. His particular interest is in how to best use technology to enhance learning and teaching. He is a relentless innovator in this space and is always keen to talk about problems in learning and teaching, and how to solve them.

Daniel's area of research is in ancient Mesopotamian mathematics: their computational techniques and how their unique and forgotten form of geometry was applied to land measurement during 2000-1600 BCE.

Daniel was the 2017 KPMG Most Inspiring Lecturer in First Year Undergraduate Program.
