I was born in Whycocomagh, a tiny village situated on the beautiful Bras d'Or Lakes in rural Cape Breton , the third of five daughters of Alcorn and Miriam (MacRae) Munro. I attended Mt.Allison University where I met my husband Harley MacCaull. We have four sons, born 06/78; 06/81; 07/84 and 06/87. (Family picture above was taken in August '98). After finishing my PhD degree in pure mathematics at MGill University in 1984, I obtained a position at St. Francis Xavier University, a liberal arts university located in Antigonish (a small town in Northeastern) Nova Scotia, and have been here ever since (except for sabbaticals spent in Philadelphia, PA, Bloomington, IN and Toronto, ON). Currently I am very busy as Principle Investigator on a collaborative Research and Development project involving academics, clinicians from GASHA, the local health authority, and an industry partner Palomino Innovation Systems Inc, with a goal to “Put science into software” . My research takes me to countries in many parts of the world where I meet interesting people of different cultures. However, when it comes to talking about issues in logic and computer science, the cultural differences disappear and real communication begins! In my spare time, I read spy novels, sing in choirs, and take dance lessons. My long term personal goals are to have a beautiful flower garden and to be able to play guitar.
