Vanessa loves outreach and enjoys speaking to a wide variety of demographics about science.
Recently, Vanessa was officially recognised for her work as the recipient of the 2018 Office of the Environment & Heritage and Ecological Society of Australia award for outstanding outreach.
School outreach is one of Vanessa’s favourite and most memorable types of outreach:
