Thank you to everyone who attended Soapbox Science Sydney 2020!
Hannah is a PhD student at The Kirby Institute. Her research looks at the relationship between crucial immune cells in the lymph node and their circulating counterparts in the blood.
Hannah's work will hopefully lead to more effective vaccines and ways to improve our responses to infection.
Dr Jody Moller is an associate research fellow within the Faculty of Science, Medicine and Health at the University of Wollongong. Jody is a lab-based toxicology researcher whose research interests sit at the intersection of analytical chemistry and public health.
Utkarshaa is a final year PhD researcher at the University of New South Wales. Her work focuses on "Controlling the long-term degradation in current solar panels". In the existing times when the planet is facing its biggest ever crisis of Global Warming, she has taken a step towards tackling it first-hand.
Dr Siobhan Bradley is a research fellow at Exciton Science & the University of Melbourne. She is a materials chemist with broad experience in the synthesis, characterisation and functionalisation of both structural and light-harvesting nanomaterials for energy conversion applications.
Holly Tootell is a Senior Lecturer in IT at the University of Wollongong. Holly’s work explores meaningful ways to understand both the adult and child perspectives in IT research. Holly believes that if we can provide positive technology encounters for children, we can create a much-needed social shift.
Dr Jen Matthews is a Research Fellow at the University of Technology Sydney. Her research applies molecular techniques to investigate the symbiotic interactions that underpin coral health and function, to better inform conservation activities and help safeguard the world's coral reefs.
Julianna is a PhD Candidate at Macquarie University. Her research focuses on uncovering the activity patterns and behaviours of the Port Jackson shark using accelerometers that function like Fitbits - but for sharks. Her study involves tagging and then tracking sharks to recover tag data.
