She is one of 25 participants in this year's program, which is a 12-month career development initiative to support research students and early career scientists who identify as women to become science professionals.

The program is designed to enhance participants’ university experience, prepare them for their careers, and establish a connected network of women who make a positive impact on the broader science community.

Participants form a community of ambassadors who are engaged with UNSW Science outreach activities, with an aim to encourage and inspire girls and women to pursue a career in maths and science.

Fiona is currently completing her PhD in Statistics under the supervision of Yanan Fan and Emma Johnston. Her research investigates the role of unconscious bias in higher education.

Congratulations to Fiona!
