Issue 106

The fields of science research are varied and diverse and becoming increasingly global and collaborative. In this issue of Research Outreach, we feature researchers from across the globe including Europe, the US, Australia and Japan. We also speak to some of the people at the forefront of ensuring that the face of research truly reflects the society it serves.

The Women in Engineering at Rochester Institute of Technology (WE@RIT) programme was initiated by Professor of Mechanical Engineering Margaret Bailey in 2003. Since then, it has become a bastion of support for female students in an academic field that remains even now, vastly male-dominated. Dr Bailey shares her experiences of leading the programme and her hopes for the future.

Global non-profit Iridescent challenges the negative myths surrounding AI and uses technology to inspire underserved children to become innovators. We speak to founder and CEO Tara Chklovski, discussing how Iridescent’s goals have become a reality.
We hope you enjoy this issue of Research Outreach – we’ve certainly enjoyed putting it together.
