Episode 51: International Women’s Day Part 2 – Australian of the Year TAS

For the second installation for our 3 part International Women’s Day miniseries we were lucky enough to interview the 2019 Australian of the Year for Tasmania, Dr Jess Melbourne-Thomas. We’re talking about Jess’s research, her experience as a women in STEM and her advocacy work in that space. 

Jess is a passionate advocate for greater diversity and increased women in leadership in STEM, an excellent science communicator and a champion for policy engagement. 

Jess has demonstrated excellence in research into marine ecosystems and how they are influenced by human activity and was Lead Author for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on the Oceans & Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (2019).
