**June Barrow-Green** (born 1953)^{[1]} is a Professor of History of Mathematics at the Open University^{[2]} and a Visiting Professor at the London School of Economics.^{[3]}

## EducationEdit

Barrow-Green obtained a BSc Hons in Mathematics in 1986 and an MSc in Mathematical Physics in 1989, both from King's College London. In 1993 she gained a PhD in Mathematics from the Open University, under supervision of Jeremy Gray, on *Poincaré and the Three Body Problem*.^{[citation needed]}

## CareerEdit

From 1993 to the present Barrow-Green has worked at the Open University, receiving a professorship in 2015.

From 2003 to 2005 she was president of the British Society for the History of Mathematics.^{[4]}
From 2007 to 2018 she was an elected member of the Council of the London Mathematical Society and during that period she served as the Librarian for the society.^{[5]}

In 2014 Barrow-Green was awarded the first Chandler Davis Prize for Expository Excellence for her article *An American Goes to Europe: Three Letters from Oswald Veblen to George Birkhoff in 1913/1914* in The Mathematical Intelligencer.^{[6]}

In 2018 she took part in a discussion panel on *The Gender Gap in Mathematical and Natural Sciences from a Historical Perspective* at the International Congress of Mathematicians 2018, Rio de Janeiro, which was chaired by the English mathematician Caroline Series and also featured the French mathematician Marie-Françoise Roy and the Argentine physicist Silvina Ponce Dawson .^{[7]}

She chairs the Executive Committee of the International Commission on the History of Mathematics.^{[8]}
