Ross Street did his undergraduate and postgraduate study at the University of Sydney where he submitted his PhD at the age of 22. He was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Illinois and an Assistant Professor at Tulane University in New Orleans. He joined Macquarie University and has continued there as a dedicated mathematics teacher and researcher. He is Emeritus Professor of Mathematics, Founding Director of the Centre of Australian Category Theory at Macquarie University, and a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science. Ross Street is an international leader in category theory and has produced many new concepts and deep facts. His research has carried him to many countries where he has collaborators. Recently he was awarded the Chaire de la Vallée Poussin 2011 by the Université catholique de Louvain, Belgium, and the 2012 George Szekeres Medal of the Australian Mathematical Society. For recreation Ross paddles a kayak, plays the mandolin, and enjoys the Australian bush.

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
