St Cross alumna, Dr Selena Milanovic (DPhil in Engineering Science, 2017), was selected by Forbes Italy among the Under 30 talents in Science for 2022. 

"Receiving this award is a tremendous honour but it is also an opportunity to do more," says Selena. "At the awards ceremony which was held in Milan, I met the other young and ambitious prize recipients, [and discussed] how we can jointly contribute to a prosperous and sustainable future." 

During her time at Oxford, Selena was also dedicated to science communication and gender equality: two passions that she brought to life by giving public talks in the UK Parliament, global summits and public schools.

"Popularising science and technology is an imperative in today's world, given the global environmental threats and healthcare challenges that stand before us. We need to act swiftly and to do that, we need to act together, promoting talent and innovation regardless of gender, race or any other limitations in mindset."

Congratulations, Selena, on this incredible recognition!
