Spotlight on Women in Tech: Dr Maisie Li
Dr Maisie Li develops innovative tools, powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence (ML/AI), to help us get to the bottom of biology faster and with greater accuracy. We caught up with her to find out more and discover her gene-ius ideas for improving diversity in the AI workforce.
Spotlight on Women in Tech: Dr Hansi Weeratunge
Since high school, Dr Hansi Weeratunge was fascinated by the power of science and maths and complex problems they could solve. She’s now applying that curiosity at CSIRO’s Data61, where she’s developing robotic solutions that could improve farming techniques and manufacturing processes.
Spotlight on Women in Tech: Dr Eromanga Adermann
As someone who enjoys pondering the mysteries of the universe, it's no surprise that Dr Eromanga Adermann choose CSIRO's Data61 to solve them. A quantum physics enthusiast, Dr Adermann is developing next-generation tech to enable quantum computing.
Our 2022 Year in Review highlights
It’s been an extraordinary year. Uncertainties and challenges have remained, but so too has perseverance, innovation, and successes. We’re proud of the science excellence, adaptive transformation and future building that CSIRO’s Data61 has achieved this year. Here are our highlights for 2022.
Spotlight on Women in Tech: Emma Krantz
Emma Krantz first discovered computers by osmosis, exploring the early internet of the 90s on her dad’s knee. Now a Senior Software Engineer at CSIRO’s Data61 at just 26 years old, we caught up with Emma about working at CSIRO and her experiences as a queer woman in tech.
