Roisin is awarded a Suffrage Science Award

Roisin was one of the 12 female scientists and engineers from across the world to be presented with a Suffrage Science award on 8 March 2019, International Women's Day. 

The awards celebrate women in science and engineering and encourage others to enter science and reach senior leadership roles. The 12 award winners were chosen by the previous award holders for their scientific achievements and ability to inspire others. The awards themselves are items of jewellery, inspired by the Suffrage movement, and are passed on as heirlooms from one female scientist to the next.

The hand-crafted scientific heirloom was presented at the Suffrage Science Awards ceremony, held at The Royal Society, London.
