Coming soon to: Adelaide, Canberra, Wollongong, Sydney, Launceston, Hobart and Newcastle.

The AIP Women in Physics Lecture Tour with Dr Karen Livesey has seen jam-packed visits to Perth and Melbourne so far.

A public lecture at University of Western Australia in Perth kicked off the tour in June with around 100 attendees – including friends, family, former colleagues and members of the public.

"I think we had record high numbers for the WiP lecture series, and Karen delivered an outstanding lecture that captivated our audience," said WA AIP branch president Jingbo Wang.

A technical seminar and tour at Curtin University was followed by several visits to Perth public high schools, plus a radio interview on ABC Perth.

The Melbourne leg of the trip was packed with a public lecture at RMIT, plus research visits at RMIT, The University of Melbourne and Monash University.

Karen also gave a talk at a Girls in Physics breakfast at Monash University, in front of a fully-engaged crowd of high school girls, and women in STEM.

A technical seminar at the ARC Centre of Excellence Future Low Energy Electronic Technologies (FLEET) rounded off the Melbourne visit.

Next stops on the tour include Adelaide, Canberra, Wollongong, Sydney, Launceston and Hobart in September.

The tour will naturally finish in Karen’s hometown at the University of Newcastle.
