Dr Katie Sizeland
When: Tuesday 25th June
Where: IDL Auditorium
We are delighted to welcome Dr Katie Sizeland to WMG.
“Katie holds a PhD in Engineering and a Bachelor of Chemical Engineering and Nanotechnology, both from Massey University. She is the recipient of multiple awards, including the Young Scientist Medal at the European Advanced Materials Congress (2018). She received the top prize at the Australian Synchrotron User Meeting for Postgraduates (2015) and has been awarded a place on Homeward Bound, a global leadership program for women in STEM (2019).
Katie is a Research Program Manager at ANSTO, and her role is split between management and research. Katie’s research investigates the nanostructure and mechanical properties of collagen using advanced imaging techniques and synchrotron-based small angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). Importantly, her research bridges the gap between synchrotron science and real-world outcomes. For instance, by understanding the hierarchical structure of collagen it is possible to create stronger medical materials and optimise patient outcomes.
Katie is passionate about science outreach and communication and hopes to inspire the next generation of women in STEM.”
Katie will be joining us to talk about her career highlights, and how she became one of the very few female X-ray scientists.
Afternoon refreshments will be available following the talk. EVERYONE WELCOME.
