Cait MacPhee, Professor of Biological Physics, has been made a CBE.

Congratulations to Cait MacPhee who was recognised in the Queen’s New Year's Honours list for her services to women in Physics. 

Cait works with primary school teachers across Scotland, increasing their confidence in incorporating science into their day-to-day lessons. She also led the School's succesful bids for the Athena SWAN Silver and Project Juno Champion awards.

Project Juno and Athena SWAN

The Institute of Physics' Project Juno recognises and rewards departments that can demonstrate they have taken action to address the under-representation of women in university physics and to encourage better practice for both women and men. 

Athena SWAN supports women in science, engineering and technology, and in the arts, humanities, social sciences, business and law, and in professional and support roles, and for trans staff and students.
