Dear ASC-List,

Today's second member guest Professor Sue Stocklmayer was the Director of
the Centre for the Public Awareness of Science from 1998 to 2015. As part
of the University's outreach programs, she has presented festival science
shows, lectures and workshops on all five continents.

Sue grew up in Zambia, graduated in physics and chemistry from the
University of London and worked on the Zambian copper mines as a chemist.
She emigrated to Australia with her family in 1982 after co-directing an
extensive hands-on science program for rural village students in Zimbabwe.
She returned to postgraduate study at Curtin University in Perth, where she
gained a Graduate Diploma in Applied Science and an M.Phil. Her early
experiences in physics laid the foundation for a deep and abiding interest
in gender issues in science.

In 1994, she completed her doctorate as a very mature-aged student and was
awarded the University's graduate medal. In 1996, Sue moved to The
Australian National University. She was awarded an AM in 2004 for science
communication initiatives, and an AO for science communication and science
education in 2016. Sue thinks that science communication is the best
possible mixture, combining science, theatre (a lifelong interest),
multicultural and gender issues and a host of other things at the interface
between science and the public.
