She was elected Fellow of the Australian Academy of Science in 2017 and made a Companion of the Order of Australia earlier this year for "eminent service to scientific research, particularly in the field of biochemistry and protein crystallography applied to drug-resistant bacteria, as a role model, and as an advocate for gender equality in science". She was a founding member of the Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) Steering Committee, that established the Athena SWAN pilot to address gender equity in science, technology, engineering, maths and medicine.
