The Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering (ATSE) has selected me as a Young Science Ambassador. Selected on personal qualities and scholarly excellence, Ambassadors engage in a number of science promotion activities such as visiting and giving lectures to schools, meeting parliamentarians and addressing Academy Fellows. These awards aim to encourage talented young scientists and engineers who are currently engaged in research and development to promote science and science education.
