Microbiologist, Keynote Speaker, Panelist

Dr Siouxsie Wiles is an award-winning scientist who has made a career of her twin passions for glow worms and infectious diseases. In a nutshell, Siouxsie and her team at the University of Auckland make nasty bacteria glow in the dark to understand how superbugs make us sick and to find new medicines. She still canít believe she gets paid to do this for a living. Siouxsie also has a keen interest in demystifying science and busting stereotypes about who does science; she is a keen blogger, podcaster, artist, curator and media science commentator.

  • On behalf of the team I would also like to thank you for speaking at our conference. I think it is fair to say that every single person that attended has been impacted by your presentations and I believe that this is a great step in the right direction. The panel session with you and Greg was also a huge success and has sparked some great questions and conversations. Thanks again and I look forward to ordering a book for myself!

  • "Dr Siouxsie Wiles was one of our speakers in 2015 Ė in fact, she was my personal pick to open our event. As Siouxsie will attest, Iíve been trying to track her down to speak for a couple of years now. Itís not surprising that she is so in demand as both her style and her subject matter (not just science) make her a versatile, popular and accessible speaker. I have no hesitation in recommending her for any kind of speaking engagement." Vaughn Davis (Content Director), TEDx Auckland.
