Faces of STEM in Defence

Becoming a Radar Signature Specialist with Defence enabled Jermaine to combine his childhood dream of joining the Army, with his strong passion for science.

At school, Rachel enjoyed both the sciences and humanities, being equally at home solving differential equations, dissecting rats or discussing philosophy.

Nanotechnologist, Melanie has always been a passionate advocate of women in STEM.

Armed with a science degree, Sydney University alumna Maggie is helping Defence make better decisions about future capability by investigating new technologies and how best to use them.

Danielle always liked maths and physics at school and at one stage envisaged a career in Meteorology.

Alex always knew that he wanted to do something involving maths, he just wasn't quite sure what.
