The Department is proud of its strong body of outstanding female academics. Here, we shine the spotlight on seven female professors. Each one is a leader in her field of research, and each one acts as a champion for her subject, taking it beyond the confines of academia and engaging with a wider public audience.  

Join us in celebrating these remarkable women scientists.
