TRI researchers join Australia's first wikibomb

Four female TRI researchers can now be found on Wikipedia following Australia’s first Wikibomb—an initiative of the Australian Academy of Science to boost the number of Australian Women in Science on Wikipedia.

Biographies for Professor Josephine Forbes (pictured right), Professor Elizabeth Powell, Associate Professor Glenda Gobe and Professor Colleen Nelson and 100 other leading female scientists, past and present, can now be found on Wikipedia.

“I was humbled to be honoured by the Australian Academy of Science. I hope that I can inspire other young women to be all they can be in science,” Prof Forbes said.

There are plans to expand on each profile in the future including links to selected publications.
