6-July-2022 (written by Jessica Pearce)

Our group leader Dr Ana Sequeira has been announced as a finalist in the West Australian Premier’s Science Awards! These awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding scientific research and engagement taking place in Western Australia. They represent a key effort of the Western Australian government’s efforts to raise the profile of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Ana is one of five finalists nominated for the HBF Mid-Career Scientist of the Year category, which is awarded to an outstanding scientist who completed their highest degree between five and fifteen years ago, and has demonstrated excellence in a field of science, scientific research or technological advancement.

Over the years, awards alumni have become important ambassadors for the state, helping to inspire future generations to take up courses and careers in STEM. The winners of this round will be announced at a ceremony in Perth during National Science Week on 15 August.

Congratulations to Ana and good luck!
