Meet Dr. Olga Shimoni, a scientist captivated with nanotechnology who wants to transform it for ground-breaking biomedical solutions!
Olga is Senior Lecturer and NHMRC-ARC Dementia Research Fellow at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS). She graduated with a BSc and MSc from Technion-Israeli Institute of Technology in chemical and materials engineering, respectively. She relocated to Australia to undertake her Ph.D. at the University of Melbourne in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, graduating in 2012. In 2014, she joined UTS as Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellow after a relatively short post-doctoral training in the School of Physics (University of Melbourne) in the field of diamonds. She is the founder of the Australian network of researchers working with nanoparticles for brain research (ANNxBBB, nano4brain.com.au). In addition, she promotes evidence-based science awareness, STEMM education, and advocates for women in STEMM issues.
