MEEP PhD student profiled in Australian Geographic


28 April 2018

Perry Beasley-Hall, a PhD student in MEEP, is one of four Aussie women working in entomology profiled in Australian Geographic.

She was interviewed to discuss perceptions of entomology as a male-dominated field and how these might be dispelled to encourage more female students to study insects. Her fascination with Australian native cockroaches is also described in the article, which was published online earlier this week.

Perry was subsequently invited to talk on Wendy Harmer and Robbie Buck's radio segment on ABC Sydney 702. A recording of the interview is available here, with Perry's segment beginning at the 3:24:03 mark.
