Dr Fenny Dwivany’s Presentation on Expanding Impact of Research to Women

For Dr Fenny M. Dwifanny, speaking to a group of elementary school children about her work as a scientist is just as important as a keynote speech to an international scientific conference. Affectionately called “The Banana Lady” for her research interest in bananas, Fenny believes that encouraging future generations to work in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) should start from a tender age. 

Fenny highlighted the issue of how women scientists can serve as role models for the younger generations and increase the number of women in STEM, at the TED-Inspired presentation: “Cracking the Code of Women in STEM: Where are tomorrow’s women leaders in science,” at the Australian Embassy in Jakarta on 18 October 2018.
