Dr Ana Baburamani

Scientific Advisor

Department of Defence - Science and Technology Group

I’ve always loved asking questions, challenging the unknown, and learning new things. My fascination for understanding how the brain grows and works in early life led me to work as a biomedical researcher at universities in Australia, Sweden, and UK.

Upon returning to Melbourne, I expanded my research interests, working with global health and policy organisation, Policy Cures Research, and now working at Defence Science and Technology Group.

I am dedicated to making science accessible and diverse. I’m passionate about sharing my experience through school and public outreach activities across the community.

Dr Ana Baburamani is a Superstar of STEM.
