Dr Boland is currently involved in teaching a first-year maths class, a third-year class in operations research, and an Honours level class in integer and combinatorial optimisation. She has a number of active research projects in both theoretical and applied operations research, and is currently supervising five PhD projects, one Honours project, and a third-year individual study project. Dr Boland regularly provides consulting services to industry in a number of areas, particularly in airline planning, transportation logistics and scheduling.
