Meet Dr. Genevieve Crowle, a forensic scientist turned materials chemist, passionate about scicomm!

Genevieve obtained a Bachelor of Forensic Science from Deakin University, followed by an Honours year working on novel biomaterials for bone regeneration. This experience in materials chemistry led Genevieve to undertake a Ph.D. through CSIRO and Deakin University studying the dyeing behaviour of cotton, which she completed earlier this year. Genevieve is currently working as a research assistant at Deakin University producing silk-based materials for applications in textile treatments. Genevieve is also passionate about science communication and its importance in breaking down the barriers between scientists and the public. Genevieve’s interests outside of science include roller derby, pole dancing, and baking.
