I want to share my STEM experiences from my careers over the last 35 years. And I want to encourage women who would like to work in STEM. I have a BSc in Applied Physics and an MSc in Applied Science from RMIT, Australia.
I have worked collaboratively in science, research and education for university, TAFE, government organisations and a private scientific software company.
I have earned my living by working with:
- agricultural chemistry. trace element chemistry and computing in the mid 1980s
- physics instrumentation and computing
- field and laboratory glaciology
- field and laboratory marine geochemistry
- technical writing for commercial hydroacoustics software
My career has taken me to Antarctica for field work, China and the United States for conferences. I have also been lucky enough to have a family and paid off a house.
In STEM you encounter challenging problems and find practical solutions, meet interesting people and can go to unique places. You have a hand in adding to our knowledge of the world. Working in STEM requires good luck and good management and making the best of wherever you find yourself.
