This year our distinguished speaker will be Professor Sarah Maddison. Sarah Maddison is the Dean of the School of Science and a professor of astrophysics at Swinburne University of Technology. She has a PhD in computational astrophysics as well as a BSc(Hons) in applied mathematics from Monash University, and has held postdoctoral fellowships in the USA and France.
Sarah’s research focuses on planet formation, specifically how tiny grains grow to become planets, which she studies both observationally with the world’s largest radio telescopes and via numerical simulations with supercomputers.
Passionate about STEM education, Sarah is engaged in a range of outreach activities, including CSIRO Scientists In Schools and projects to get young girls involved in STEM. An active advocate for women in STEM, Sarah is the Swinburne University lead for the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) Pilot.
