The University of Adelaide Office of the Vice-Chancellor in partnership with the Gender, Equity and Diversity Committee, and the Office of the Deputy Vice Chancellor and Vice President (Research), has established the Academic Women’s Research Excellence Awards (WREA).
These awards recognise, celebrate and promote academic women’s research excellence at the University of Adelaide. There are three categories: early career-researchers, mid-career researchers and established researchers.
Dr Thushari Atapattu has received an award in 2017 for her achievements as an early career researcher. As part of this award Thushari will receive $5000 to contribute toward research activities.
