The University of NSW Professor was recognised for her contributions to optics, photonics and imaging.
Professor Ewa Goldys, from the Graduate School of Biomedical Engineering at the University of NSW, was recently recognised as a Fellow of SPIE – the international society for optics and photonics.
Fellows are SPIE Members of distinction who have made significant contributions in the multidisciplinary fields of optics, photonics and imaging.
As Deputy Director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Nanoscale BioPhotonics (CNBP), she says she’s excited to regularly engage with international researchers across the optics and photonics space, to help generate new ideas and to explore new opportunities.
Professor Goldys was elected a Fellow of ATSE last year.
“Fellowships, their ability to help develop and drive policy as well as the discussion and networking opportunities enabled, provide a fantastic environment to stimulate new thinking,” Professor Goldys says.
“That benefits everyone involved from the researcher and their institution to the wider research community more generally.
“From my side, I'm really looking forward to some thought-provoking and energising conversations.”
SPIE was founded in 1955 and promotes information exchange through conferences and publications, supports education and career development, and engages in advocacy.
Professor Goldys award citation noted her “achievements in optical characterisation of nanomaterials, biochemical and medical sensing”.
“As a new Fellow of both highly regarded organisations I hope to extend and leverage these relationships to add value where I can, particularly in the area of research translation and commercialisation,” she says.
“I’ll also look at broader areas such as how to enable and enhance the career prospects of younger researchers in science.”
