Gravitational-wave astrophysics PhD student, Monash University
British, living in Melbourne, Australia
Originally from the UK, Isobel now studies gravitational-wave astrophysics for her PhD in Melbourne, Australia. She studies the tiny ripples in space-time caused by black holes and neutron stars smashing into each other. Isobel works to increase the representation of women in STEMM through outreach activities and the IncludeHer movement. Previously, she volunteered with groups teaching young girls to code, and with others teaching the science of sustainable living to the general public. In her spare time Isobel makes art, writes, reads and explores. She recently self-published Planetymology, a book about the planets and the evolution of their names.
