Personal profile

Biography

Dr Jasmina Lazendic-Galloway is a lecturer in the School of Physics and Astronomy, Monash University. After her PhD in Australia, Jasmina held postdoctoral fellowships at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. She came to Monash as an inaugural Margaret Clayton Women in Science fellow. Her astrophysics expertise includes supernova remnants and molecular clouds, and stretches from radio all the way to gamma-ray wavelengths, the full electromagnetic spectrum!

As a lecturer, Jasmina is passionate about learner-centred practices and incorporating the excitement of scientific research into her undergraduate courses. Her research interest is not focused has on astronomy and physics education, metacogniton and reflective practices in learning, student engagement and issues in higher educatin in general. 

Jasmina teaches introductory astronomy courses at Monash and enjoys exploring criss-crossings of science, art and society and has designed a first Science unit for Monash Prato Centre SCI240 - From Galileo to GPS: How Astronomy shapes our Lives. 

She is passionate about communicating science and has appeared in the ABC’s Catalyst programs and various local and international radio shows.
