Queen’s Birthday Honours for CRC researcher

CRC researcher Professor Vivienne Tippett has been recognised for her efforts and contributions to science with a Queen’s Birthday Medal of the Order of Australia.

The OAM recognised Prof Tippett's contribution to medical education where she has worked for over ten years as a researcher in the area of pre-hospital care.

Dr Richard Thornton, CRC CEO, said the recognition was well deserved.

“Receiving an OAM is a fantastic achievement by Vivienne. On behalf of all at the Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC I'd like to congratulate Vivienne on all of her achievements over her extensive career.”

Prof Tippett leads the communication and warnings cluster for the CRC, which covers risk and warnings research for natural hazards. She leads the Effective risk and warning communication during natural hazards study.

Prof Tippett is the Head of the Discipline for Paramedicine in the Faculty of Health at Queensland University of Technology and the Director of Research for the School of Clinical Science.

She was recognised as one of 125 Women in Leadership by the YWCA in 2014.

The 2018 Queen’s Birthday Honours List is available on the Governor-General’s website.
