Women in STEM (Stage 2, Stage 3, Stage 4, Stage 5, Stage 6)

Live Event

This International Day of Women and Girls in Science join us to hear about being a young woman in science, making a difference, and starting a STEM career


Despite progress made by women in higher education, a persistent gender gap remains in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields worldwide at all levels and women continue to remain underrepresented in these disciplines. 

At Arludo our mission is to increase interest in STEM topics and improve scientific thinking for students of all genders, ages, and socioeconomic levels. This mission feeds into our aspirations to see a culturally and ethnically diverse society become prepared for a technological future.

To recognise International Day of Women and Girls in Science, join two Arludo Ambassadors to hear more about their research, what it’s like to be a young woman in science, how they’re making a difference in Science and how other Women and Girls can start their own STEM careers!

Presenter Bio

Aashi Parikh is a PhD candidate in the environmental DNA lab at Macquarie University. She is studying whales through their poop – extracting DNA from faecal samples to learn about the whales, their prey and their gut bacteria! When not hunched up in the lab or busy doing life, Aashi has been enjoying teaching herself the cello, can’t speak for her neighbours though…

Anastasia Shavrova is your friendly neighbourhood spider biologist and a PhD candidate at UNSW. She studies the evolution of extreme mating behaviours, such as sexual cannibalism, and asks the question: Why? Why would such extreme and deadly behaviours evolve!
