Congratulations to Dr Sarah Scholten!

Dr Sarah Scholten (University of Adelaide) has led the BreathELISA project, Breath analysis for detection of disease, and developed a dual-colour two-photon Rb clock. She successfully transitioned both research streams into real-world applications: the terrestrial Rb clock she built operated successfully and autonomously aboard a NZ ship during the RIMPAC 2022 naval exercise in Hawaii, and a satellite compatible Rb clock is currently being ruggedised with the commercialisation partner. BreathELISA will begin clinical trials this year and has already generated media attention including news articles (IFLS, New Scientist, Science Daily), radio & TV interviews and invited talks at the MASCC, AIP, and ATMOP conferences, along with a 3-week invited research exchange to UWA, and a research exchange invite at NIST.
