Anthea began her career in theoretical chemistry, when computer programs were written on card decks. More recently she completed a PhD, while living with the Yolngu people in Arnhemland, documenting the social life of the computer there, as it made its way from white-fella offices to the pockets of the teenagers. She has also worked in clinical chemistry, education and curriculum development. Her most rewarding work always involved small effective teams and networking. It is the opportunity to interact with other women around the world, all caring about the future of our planet, that inspired her to apply for Homeward Bound.
