I have been interested in fibre arts and garment making for over 10 years. My creations primarily use second hand and upcycled materials, with sustainable making as a foundation for my practice. I am inspired and encouraged by my grandmothers, and by the worldwide community of makers.
The intersection between fibre arts and science is strong, if not always apparent. Sewing is essentially engineering 3D objects using flat, soft materials to fit complex curving shapes. Knitting designs are mathematical in nature, with patterns and geometry key to a successful garment.
I am completing my PhD in planetary geology and cosmochemistry. My research focuses on the formation of IIE iron meteorites and their relationship with ordinary chondrites. I am interested in core formation, the behaviour of elements during impact events, and the formation and evolution of planetary bodies.
I am a PhD student at the Research School of Earth Sciences (RSES) at the Australian National University. I began my undergraduate degree at the University of Wollongong before transferring to the ANU. In 2014 I graduated with First Class Honours in a Bachelor of Science (Advanced), receiving the University Medal.
My PhD research focuses on the formation of IIE iron meteorites and their potential genetic relationship to H chondrites. I use a variety of geochemical and petrographical techniques along with physical and chemical modelling to understand the formation and evolution of planetary materials.
