Mars Geldard
Tutor, University of Tasmania


Marina Rose Geldard, more commonly known as Mars, is a final-year computing student from Down Under in Tasmania. Entering the world of technology relatively late as a mature-age student, she has found her place in the world: an industry where she can apply her lifelong love of mathematics and optimization. When she is not busy being the most annoyingly eager student ever, she compulsively volunteers at industry events, dabbles in research, and serves on the executive committee for her state’s branch of the Australian Computer Society (ACS).
