Watch Johanna Austin talk about her journey, make her own career path, and trailblazing a way in STEM!! Johanna Austin was the first female Robotics and Automation Research Engineer in Boeing’s Melbourne based robotics group. She was awarded her Bachelor of Engineering with First Class Honors at RMIT and her Masters of Science in Computer Science at Georgia Tech. Her latest role is as Technical Lead Engineer – Robotics Systems at AOS Group with focus in autonomous systems and distributed AI. Johanna is also a part time helicopter pilot. She shares information about her career journey and her feelings at being the first woman in ten years in her research group, how she handled that and the importance of having women around you at work. Johanna also shows some of the advanced robotics research that she’s been engaged in with Boeing.
