I am delighted to introduce this new collection of interviews from women academics in physical sciences and mathematics at the University of Oxford.

As an engineer and entrepreneur, and participant in this project, I am excited to share my own personal insights with you along with a wide range of experiences from my fellow colleagues.

Broadening from the original focus on medical sciences, these additional interviews complement and extend our understanding of what it means to be ‘women in science’ working in Oxford. You’ll hear from women who are innovators and pioneers in their male-dominated fields, forging new paths, creating collaborations, and bridging academia and industry. 

The interviews have been integrated into the existing topics and two additional topics have emerged around entrepreneurship, and leadership, administration and everyday workingI encourage you to explore the topics most intriguing to you at this stage in your career, and I hope that you gain some useful insight to continually advance your career in science.

The new participants are:

Hazel Assender, Claudia Bertoni, Daniela Bortoletto, Helen Byrne, Kristina Dahlin, Charlotte Deane, Priyanka Dhopade, Alison Etheridge, Marta Kwiatkowska, Tamsin Mather, Alison Noble, Judith Rousseau, Angela Russell, Eleanor Stride, Amy Varney, Kylie Vincent and Julia Yeomans.
