Dr. Rebecca Allen

Rebecca is the project coordinator for Swinburne's Space office and manager of Swinburne Astronomy productions. In her role she creates immersive learning environments and hands-on experiences to provide students with the opportunity to appreciate just what it is to be a STEM practitioner. In the Space Office, she connects university students with space industry partners enabling them to undertake projects in the exciting field. An example of this is the SHINE ( project where university students mentor secondary students as they design, build and program their very own microgravity experiment to fly aboard the International Space Station. When Rebecca is not helping students gain STEM experience, she is sharing her knowledge of space through outreach facilitation by creating new and exciting content with Swinburne Astronomy Productions (SAP). The 3D movies created by SAP are shared globally. To ensure she is up-to-date with the latest research findings she continues to use her credentials to learn more about the evolution of galaxies using new tools and perspectives.
