More About Mary
Mary McMillan moved to Armidale in 2003 to study science at the University of New England – and just never left. She is now a Senior Lecturer in Biomedical Science at UNE, where she works with the multi-disciplinary Brain Behaviour Research Group on projects to increase understanding of the biology and physiology of mental health disorders, with a major focus on depression and autism spectrum disorder. She also coordinates the Universities “Science Pathways” program, which helps students who don’t have a traditional background in science transition into University studies in this area. Mary is a passionate advocate for girls and women in STEM. She is an alumnus of the global Homeward Bound leadership program for women in STEM, which saw her spend time in Antarctica in 2019, and in January this year she has been named as one of twelve inaugural STEM Changemakers by the Australian Academy of Science. One of Mary’s other passions is science communication – she writes a regular science column for regional newspapers across Australia, makes appearances on ABC radio, and generally hopes to spark an interest in science across rural and regional communities.
