Leading the way in cybersecurity

Associate Professor Elena Sitnikova

Associate Professor Elena Sitnikova – a recent arrival at Flinders University – has won a 2022 Women in AI Award, which honours the top Australian and New Zealand women in working Artificial Intelligence. As a specialist in cybersecurity, Associate Professor Sitnikova won the AI in Cyber Security category – and was applauded at the awards as a “pioneer taking the road less-travelled, and a woman paving the way for others to reach even further and to dare to dream even bigger”.

Open Access to executive committee

Flinders’ Associate Librarian Dr Danny Kingsley has been named among the new members of the Open Access Australasia executive committee. This new committee represents a wealth of expertise and experience from across New Zealand and Australia, and includes members who have worked across the region and internationally. Their aim is to help provide guidance and expertise that ensures Open Access Australasia can continue to provide open access to research publications – preprints, peer reviewed scholarly manuscripts, books, monographs and theses.
