ARC Future Fellow Dr Francesca McInerney has been nominated as an unsung hero as part of National Science Week.
The awards are intended to recognise those whose contribution to South Australian Science and Science Communication has been significant over a long period of time but who have not yet received formal public recognition.
Dr McInerney measures the isotopic composition of fossil plants to learn about past climates, and their effects on ancient ecosystems.
The winners will be announced at the South Australian Excellence Award night on August 11, to coincide with the launch of National Science Week.
We wish Dr McInerney the best of luck!
