Congratualtions Cathy

We'd like to congratulate Cathy Foley who, along with her colleague Keith Leslie, was awarded the prestigious Clunies Ross award for innovation and commercialisation.  This has been for the development of the LANDTEM system, which has discovered $4 billion of ore deposits across Australia - and $10 billion across the world. 

Cathy is a former Women in Physics lecturer and Chair of the Women in Physics group.  She's a fantastic role model and incredible supporter of women in physics.  Do check out her TEDx talk on what women can do for science - it's a great outline of the issues and how unconscious bias can hold us all back and what we can do to move ourselves forward.
