Official Festival Aurora Advisor

Dr Lisa Gershwin

You may know of Dr Lisa Gershwin as the jellyfish lady. She’s discovered more than 200 new species of jellyfish (plus one dolphin!), and written three best-selling books on these stingy jigglers, along with more than a hundred peer-reviewed papers and industry reports and two TEDx talks. Lisa is still blushing over being named this year by the Science Show on ABC Radio National as one of the Top 100 Australian Scientists (of all time!). These days, Lisa shares her fascinations of things that glow in the dark through her Glow Shows and Glow Tours.
