Join us for this HOA in 15 minutes as Dr Buddhini Samarasinghe and I chat with materials scientist Professor Julia Greer! We’ll talk about her careerpath and work with nanomaterials. We’ll tackle the narrow stereotypes the public sometimes has about scientists. She’ll also talk us through how she manages work/life balance as a working mother and how academia might be more flexible and supportive of STEM parents.

Join us for a STEM Women HOA as we speak to Professor Julia Greer on her career as a materials scientist. Julia works on 3D nanomaterials, and her research specialises in the creation of extremely strong yet ultra-light materials. She will talk to us about her fascinating career path and diverse interests, along with ways in which academia can be more supportive of STEM parents.
