Samantha Vilkins is a PhD candidate in science communication and Communications and Engagement Officer at the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science at The Australian National University in Canberra.
Her previous study includes discrete mathematics and computational science, and she still sees graph theory everywhere. Her current research focuses on the uses of quantified evidence in policy and politics, and what gets left behind by metrics and statistics.
Her work has been on display at the National Museum and the National Library, and was part of the Science Gallery Melbourne's 2018 PERFECTION exhibit.
