Julianna is a first-generation American with a Hungarian background and is a PhD candidate in Sydney. Her cross-disciplinary research combines biology and data science to observe shark behaviours. She deploys tags to collect masses of data and then uses machine learning to decode it and ‘see’ what sharks are doing underwater. Julianna is a passionate advocate for sharks and science communication and puts hands-on STEMM learning into practice with primary to university level students. 

Julianna identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
