Biography
Andrea Sosa Pintos is a Senior Research Engineer with over 15 years of experience at CSIRO Manufacturing where she leads the Nanosensors research team. More recently, Andrea was also appointed to lead D&I for the Manufacturing Business Unit, and advise on strategies to achieve the organisation’s D&I goals. Andrea is passionate about creating change in workplaces engaged in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to make them more inclusive and productive for everyone - not only because it's the right thing to do, but also because it's good for business and innovation.
Andrea combines her research and engineering background with her passion for D&I to identify issues, gaps and opportunities in STEM organisations and influence change from within. Andrea is a strong advocate for encouraging more individuals from under-represented backgrounds into STEM professions and is a mentor for the WSU's WISE (Women in Science and Engineering) program and for the Engineers Australia's mentoring program.
