Cool jobs: Science and Business
Participant: Dr Erin Rayment
Studying physics and chemistry doesn’t just lead to working in a lab (although that’s awesome too!). QUT’s Dr Erin Rayment uses her degree in Biotechnology Innovation to explore and develop advances in biological engineering and business. Working as Executive Director of Industry Engagement at QUT, Dr Rayment works to set up new companies and products, pushing the boundaries of new technologies—such as using gene editing to help the banana industry develop banana crops that can resist disease! Making the world a better place by intersecting science and business? Now that’s a cool job!
