University of South Australia geoscientist Associate Professor Caroline Tiddy has been named a Superstar of STEM for her work to develop new sensor and geochemical exploration technologies to find critical metals.

Caroline is among 60 diverse scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians recognised nationally by Science & Technology Australia to celebrate the country’s most inspiring women and non-binary people working in STEM, who are smashing the stereotype of “an old man in a white lab coat”.

Caroline’s research focuses on developing more efficient and environmentally friendly ways to explore essential metals, particularly those in high demand, and to improve decreasing rates of discovery of mineral resources.

Above all this, Caroline is a genuine, kind, and honest person. We feel proud to have her on our team. Congrats from all of us here at MinExCRC.
