Women in science we admire

Karina Dambergs

Karina Dambergs nominated by Fiona Kerslake

Karina is a highly-awarded winemaker and cidermaker,  and also has one of the most brilliant science minds I  have come across. Karina’s understanding of first  principles and her application of these in industry is  outstanding, and she is always willing to assist others to  lift the Tasmanian industry as a whole. Karina asked me  to co-host a Science Week event last year, but I learnt just  as much from her as did the participants! Karina now  also shares her knowledge starting and growing a  business through her work in The Van Diemen Project
Karina Dambergs is one of my closest collaborators  and we have transitioned together from sparkling  wine research into cider research.
