YTP 2020

It was a great honour to receive my Young Tall Poppy award last night from His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC in the Eclipse Room at the University of Adelaide.

“The Tall Poppy Campaign was created in 1998 by the Australian Institute of Policy and Science (AIPS) to recognise and celebrate Australian intellectual and scientific excellence and to encourage younger Australians to follow in the footsteps of our outstanding achievers.”

The award night was held in collaboration with Inspiring South Australia and National Science Week to celebrate both the Young Tall Poppy crop of 2020, but also the Unsung Hero Awards of South Australian science.

In particular, I wish to congratulate Graham Medlin from the South Australian Museum, citizen scientists Robert and Rosalie Lawrence for ‘Wild Orchid Watch’, and Dr Kylie Dunning (ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics) for their awards.

I feel very lucky to have been nominated by my mentor, Prof. John Long, and it was great to be able to celebrate in person on the night and hear about the varied research and outreach happening here in South Australia.
