Mathilde Desselle - Round 2, 2017 Champion

Mentoring and educating women in technology

Mathilde Desselle is at the forefront of discovering innovative health approaches by applying 3D technologies to medicine.

With more than 10 years’ experience managing life science research programs and facilities across Europe and Australia, Mathilde moved to Queensland in 2012 and is now overseeing the establishment of the Queensland University of Technology’s (QUT) new Herston Biofabrication Institute (a partnership with Metro North Hospital and Health Service). Mathilde is also a Director for two Queensland-based not-for-profit organisations in the space of technology, gender equality and science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) education.

When Mathilde isn’t finding solutions to advance human health, she is actively promoting women in technology and raising awareness of STEM careers for girls as:

  • board director, mentor and role model to the Tech Girls Movement Foundation
  • co-founder and coordinator of a National Science Week program
  • former board director of Women in Technology – a peak association for women in science and ICT careers in Queensland

Mathilde also shares her knowledge of international medical science and technology on ABC Radio Brisbane as a community correspondent for science, and at events across the state including the Queensland Science Communicators Network, World Science Festival, National Science Week, Australian Science Communicators and the Pint of Science...just to name a few!

As a Community Digital Champion, Mathilde will:

  • facilitate technology showcases and panels featuring 3D printing and medical technologies
  • create a 3D printed drone for QUT STEM schools
  • coordinate the Catch a Queensland Rising Star program during National Science Week 2017
  • mentor and advocate in the Tech Girls are Super Heroes program
  • share her knowledge as a judge and panellist at the World of Drones Congress 2017
  • coordinate the “hospital of the future” at Robotronica
  • continue her educational work as a science community correspondent for ABC radio Brisbane
  • launch a robotics podcast in 2017.

Mathilde is widely respected and recognised in her field winning the 2016 Women in Technology – InfoTech Professional Award, The University of Queensland 2016 Team Award for Excellence in Innovation, and in 2017, the IMPACT7 Award for collaboration and Gemaker Award for Innovation.
