Gail has a PhD in experimental physics from the UK and now works as a lecturer in physics at RMIT University. Gail came to Australia in 2014 to work as a scientist at ANSTO where she used neutrons to explore the properties of materials such as structure, magnetism and superconductivity. Gail was an astronaut instructor at the European Astronaut Centre in Germany and holds a medal for extensive time spent experimenting in zero gravity. In 2011, Gail was presented the WISE Champion Award by HRH Princess Anne, for inspiring children, particularly girls, to study STEM subjects.
