What energises me most is learning (in general, but especially about science) and exchanging & developing knowledge with others.

I have been working in the Scientific and Medical Affairs sector of the Australian pharmaceutical industry for the past four years; prior to that I undertook a pharmacy degree and a PhD in basic research in kidney disease.  

I am highly interested in promoting and nurturing STEM education, especially for girls and young women. I am setting up a pro bono group of female STEM mentors, and would love to hear from you if you may have capacity to contribute to this group. I am especially interested in connecting with women from STEM backgrounds different to mine, such as engineering, maths and computing.      


Michelle identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
