SIX outstanding young researchers from the ACT were recognised with prestigious Young Tall Poppy Science Awards at a ceremony at the Australian Academy of Science in Canberra on September 3, 2019.
These winners showcase the high standard of world leading research being carried out in the Territory. From the role of Indigenous perspectives on drought and water management to engineering a crease-free form of cotton, these Tall Poppies of Science are working on projects that will benefit all Australians well into the future.
Tall Poppies from the Australian Capital Territory are experts from many fields and take part in a variety of outreach programs.
The Young Tall Poppy Science Awards are run by the Australian Institute of Policy and Science (AIPS) to honour up-and-coming scientists who combine world-class research with a passionate commitment to communicating science.
Mr Bradley Moggdrige was named the 2019 ACT Tall Poppy of the Year on the night from among the six winners.
