What’s it like to be a woman in science?

Hear from five UNSW Sydney women scientists who are breaking gender stereotypes and encouraging girls to consider science as a career. The speakers and their area of research are:

  • Dr Lisa Nivison-Smith, optometry
  • Dr Poppy Watson, psychology
  • Dr Ruth Thomas, chemistry
  • Dr Zhi Yi Ong, psychology
  • Dr Celine Heu, microscopy and biology

They are all UNSW Women in Maths and Science Champions, part of a development program to support University of New South Wales female research students and early career scientists to become science professionals.

The champions will showcase their research and conduct a Q&A panel.

Great for science buffs and high school students considering a career in science!

Location: Emanuel Tsardoulias Community Library, 362-372 New Canterbury Road, Dulwich Hill, NSW 2203
