MEEP PhD student profiled in Australian Geographic

Perry Beasley-Hall, a PhD student in the MEEP Lab, 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.
