Professor Elisabetta Barberio receives the AIP Women in Physics lectureship for 2013

The Australian Institute of Physics Women in Physics Lecture Tour celebrates the contribution of women to advances in physics. It is awarded to women who have made a significant contribution to physics research. In the coming months Elisabetta with embark on a series of public lectures about the Higgs discovery.

Professor Elisabetta Barberio believes the Women in Physics lecture tour provides a great opportunity for people to experience the recent discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC. She also believes that programs like this are vital in providing positive role models for young women.

“We often think that physics research is a purely male field, but it doesn't have to be that way. The ATLAS experiment was led for a long time by a woman, and women are doing some amazing research in this area. The recent discovery of the Higgs has really inspired people to engage with physics. We need to funnel this excitement and encourage young women to see the kinds of things they can achieve."
