Professor Michelle Yvonne Simmons’ Australian of the Year win could help close the gender gap in the Australian science industry, according to a leading education advocate.

Prof Simmons is a pioneering physicist who leads the quantum physics department at the University of New South Wales.

During her acceptance speech, Prof Simmons said her industry is male-dominated and she hoped the win would shatter expectations of what careers women should pursue and achieve.
