Not a straight line - a scientific life

Tuesday, April 1, 2014

As part of the city wide ‘Festival of Science and Engineering’, Professor Dame Athene Donald was invited to give a lecture at Sheffield Hallam University. In it she described the journey she took from Camden School for Girls to Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge.

Meg Munn MP was invited to introduce Professor Donald before her lecture and she described the work they have done together to encourage women into less traditional work roles. She reflected on how using post-it notes, as described in Professor Donald’s blogs, to organise many strains of thinking is an idea that she has used herself.

Professor Donald explained that a lot of her career has come about by being willing to say yes to projects that have taken her out of her comfort zone. This has meant that the focus of her research has changed a number of times throughout her career.

Meg said:

"This was a really interesting lecture that explained how Athene Donald has advanced her career in an unconventional way, and is a great example for women thinking of working in a non conventional role. It was a pleasure to introduce Athene’s talk and I wish her well when she becomes the Master of Churchill College, Cambridge in October."
