The Top 5 under 40 program is an initiative of ABC Radio National and UNSW to discover Australia's next generation of science communicators and give them a voice. The program was open to outstanding early-career researchers under 40 who are working in Australian universities and research organisations across science, technology, engineering, mathematics and medical research.

Sophie will begin a two-week media residency in Sydney at Radio National in July.

Congratulations to Sophie!
