University of Adelaide graduate Luisa Panuccio is changing the face of STEM. A qualified Civil and Architectural Engineer, Luisa currently works as a Project Manager for major infrastructure projects and uses her platform to be a role model for young girls looking to pursue a career in STEM.

In 2019, Luisa received the National Association of Women in Construction Graduate of the Year Award for her role in managing a complex program of works involving the construction of 20 civil projects across the Adelaide metropolitan area.

As an Ambassador for Engineers Australia, Engineers Without Borders Australia, Google and Children’s University Australia, Luisa speaks regularly at schools, careers expos and industry events about her role as a STEM professional to address the negative stereotypes associated with careers in STEM.

Luisa was a finalist in two categories in the 2020 7NEWS Young Achiever Awards for South Australia, the University of Adelaide STEM Award and the University Senior College Create Change Award.

Luisa identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
