RACI member since 2020
I first joined the RACI as a postgraduate research student in 2012 to attend the Student Physical Chemistry Conference. Since then, I have found colleagues from all over Australia and enjoyed publishing and promotion opportunities for my research, early career workshops, and seminars from all areas of chemistry. I recommend a RACI Post Graduate membership to any chemistry postgraduate students I talk to. Participating in the collective voice and have an impact on policy, advocacy the chemical community is an invaluable, rewarding, and essential part of career development.
