Dr Jacinda Ginges is a theoretical physicist. Her research is focused on using atoms to search for possible new particles and to answer some of the big questions in science. For example, why is our Universe made up mostly of matter and not antimatter? Her research in atoms complements studies at the largest particle colliders on Earth. Jacinda obtained her PhD from UNSW Sydney in 2004. Before coming to UQ, she worked at University of Alberta (Canada), UNSW, and University of Sydney. She is the recipient of several awards and fellowships, including a prestigious ARC Future Fellowship.
