Event Details

What? - We'll be holding a panel event, complete with Q&A, networking (games) and nibbles. The panel will feature 8 people from a diverse set of Science, Technology,Engineering and Maths (STEM) careers.

Where? - We'll be at Microsoft's Research offices in Cambridge, near the main stations. Full address is Microsoft Research Cambridge, 21 Station Road, Cambridge CB1 2FB.

When? - We'll be there from 2.00pm for a 2.20pm start and hope to be finished by 5pm latest.

There are amazing women in the UK's Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) fields, but a lack of females rising to take their place in STEM. This diverse panel will be sharing their unusual STEM career paths and giving some top tips to current STEM students considering their options after university.  The event is open to all and promises to provide a fantastic opportunity to meet and network with real STEM professionals and discover new opportunities, all over light refreshments in a relaxed atmosphere.

This event is sponsored and hosted by Microsoft Research. It is being co-run by Cambridge AWISE, Cam Women in Tech and Stemettes.

We'll be hearing from:

  • Jennifer Murray a Behavioural Neuroscientist at the University of Cambridge studying drug addiction. She is also a Fellow in Psychology at Murray Edwards College.
  • Rose Spear a Biomedical Engineer at Cambridge University, working on the problem of loosening hip replacement implants. She is also chair of the British Science Association's Cambridgeshire branch.
  • Anne Clarke a Business Analyst for the Bloomsbury Library Management Group, implementing a new open source library system across a consortium of libraries
  • Tanya Morton is an Application Engineering Manager at MathWorks, helping customers apply mathematical software to solve a wide range of technical problems in science, engineering and finance
  • Sara-Jane Dunn is a postdoctoral researcher at Microsoft Research Cambridge. Her work is focused on the theory of how and why cells perform computation and unlocking the mysteries of decision-making in stem cells
  • Nicole Fraser is an chartered Machanical Engineer at Johnson Matthey, managing the vehicle test facilities in the Emissions Control Technologies division
  • Helen Scales is a science writer and documentary maker who, true to her name, specialises in the undersea realm and all things fishy. Her first book explores the extraordinary lives of seahorses and you can hear her on BBC radio talking about everything from shark brains to living underwater.
  • One mystery man working in STEM
 

 

Arriving by train:Trains arrive into Cambridge Station, Station Rd from most locations in the UK. They leave from Kings Cross, London. The Microsoft Research Office is located on Station Rd also.
 

Arriving by car & parking: There are 26 car parking spaces available on-site at the side of the building, and a further six over the road. Mill Road is the best residential street to look for parking otherwise, but you may have quite a walk back to the office. The nearest car parks are located at Cambridge Station (2minute walk) and the Leisure Complex (5/10 minute walk). Park & Rideis also a good option, and you can find the nearest car park and bus stop here: http://www.parkandride.net/cambridge/facilities/cambridge_interactive_map.html
 

About the Stemettes - We run panel events, hackathons and exhibitions for girls from 9 years old right up to female university students. We'd like to show them amazing women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics careers. Some of whom might wear heels, makeup and carry handbags just like any other woman!
