Research Fellow at Monash University
Living in Victoria, Australia
Anindita is an Earth scientist and postdoctoral researcher. She studies cracks in the Earth’s outer shell, which form when tectonic plates break apart or collide. Currently she is investigating how these processes create metal deposits in Australia as part of an ARC Linkage Project. She is also interested to learn more about their impacts on earthquake hazard and geothermal energy. Anindita is an enthusiastic science communicator and strives to foster the wellbeing of PhD and early career researchers.
Originally from Indonesia, Anindita went to school in the US, studied for her Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Austria, and completed a PhD in geology in Australia. She has discovered that people tend to listen when she speaks thoughtfully and confidently. She looks forward to working with Homeward Bound to elevate Women in STEMM and promote kind and courageous leadership. Anindita likes to write and spend time with her family. She also thinks and talks a lot about running, even when she is not running.
