Overview

Overview

You are invited to join the Telelink winter webinar series exploring the lives of three very special guests this July.

About Wanda Díaz-Merced

Wanda Díaz-Merced is an astronomer best known for using the process of sonification to enable the study of space through sound.

Losing her sight in her early twenties, Wanda developed new ways to study stellar radiation that were accessible to people who are blind or have low vision. Discovering she could use sound to detect patterns in radio data that could potentially be obscured or missed in visual and graphical representations, Wanda has become a leader in increasing equality of access to astronomy and has been included in the BBC’s list of the seven most trailblazing women in science.

This is a 60-minute online event where you can ask our special guests questions in real-time. You can stream the webinars from your smartphone, tablet or computer, or listen in on your landline.

Our guest is keen to answer questions you may have. Please send them to webinar@visonaustralia.org. You will also be able to ask questions via email or through Zoom during the webinar.
