Author Biography

Dr. Michelle Dickinson (MNZM), creator of the character Nanogirl, author of best-seller The Kitchen Science Cookbook and co-founder of Nanogirl Labs, is on a mission to make science and engineering more accessible, friendly and engaging for all. After establishing New Zealand’s first nanomechanical testing lab and teaching at The University of Auckland’s Faculty of Engineering, she went on to co-found social enterprise Nanogirl Labs. Michelle strongly believes that science should be open, transparent and a topic of conversation over the dinner table, not just the lab bench, and her vision is to create positive role models in the world that our children can aspire to be like.
