Professor Xiaojing Hao (FTSE, FAIP)
School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering, UNSW Sydney
2020 Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science awardee
2021 Australian Academy of Science Pawsey Medal
Prof Xiaojing Hao obtained her PhD in the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering of UNSW in 2010, and currently the full Professor (tenured) and ARC future Fellow at UNSW. Prof Hao has focused her research on low-cost, high-efficiency thin film solar cells and tandem solar cells for more than ten years, researching on various energy materials, initially using Si, and then earth-abundant compound semiconductor materials such as chalcogenides for both solar photovoltaic and solar fuel applications. Prof Hao now leads a strong group in the above areas, achieving a number of efficiency records on emerging thin film solar cells. Prof Hao has published 166 peer-reviewed journal papers, including publications in Nature Energy, Energy and Environmental Science, with several awards for her research excellence. She was the recipient of Inaugural Australian Renewable Energy Agency Postdoc Fellow, previous ARC DECRA, inaugural Sciential Fellow at UNSW. She was awarded a number of prestigious national prizes, including 2020 Prime Minister’s Prizes for Science: Malcolm McIntosh Prize for Physical Scientist of the Year, 2021 Australian Academy of Science Pawsey Medal.
Dr Emma Camp
Climate Change Cluster, University of Technology Sydney
2021 Eureka Prize for Outstanding Early Career Researcher
2019 Young Tall Poppy Science Award
Dr Emma Camp is an award-winning and internationally renowned corals expert who is passionate both about the protection of coral reefs, and the involvement of women and girls in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. She is an ARC DECRA and UTS Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Research Fellow, and is also Deputy Team Leader of the Future Reefs Program within the Climate Change Cluster at UTS. In 2021, she established a Coral Biogeochemistry group within the Future Reefs team. Her research focuses on the physiology, ecology and biogeochemistry of coral reefs, and she was a co-founder of the Coral Nurture Program, a new approach for caring for the Great Barrier Reef initiated by a partnership between tourism and science. Part of her research involves learning more about highly tolerant or “super corals” in the hope of helping coral reefs that are in danger.
Since 2013, Emma has received or been shortlisted for 30 awards, including the 2021 Eureka Prize for Outstanding Early Career Researcher; a Next Generation Leader by Time Magazine (2020); a L’Oréal-UNESCO for Women in Science Fellow (2020), a Max Day Award from the Australian Academy of Science (2019), and a Tall Poppy Science Award from the Australian Institute of Policy & Science (2019).
In 2018, she was named a Young Leader for the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, and in 2020 she was a STEM Women’s Game Changer by the Australian Academy of Science. She is also a National Geographic Explorer and wants to engage society with research so that more people can become part of the solutions required to protect the planet.
