Biography

Dr. Jasjeet Kaur is a Research Scientist at Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO, Manufacturing), Australia. Her research focuses on working with novel polymers and transforming them into high quality fibres or membranes by wet spinning and bicomponent spinning techniques at pilot scale. She has fundamental training in data tidying, management, visualisation, analysis and communication. Her research skills can produce bespoke fibres which are mechanically robust, low cost and light weight that have applications in gas adsorption, energy storage and flexible textiles.

She is a determined research scientist with strong problem-solving skills in fundamental science and industry-specific problems. She has established strong research ethics over the last ten years to carry out research investigations by preparing experimental design proposals. Interpreting and presenting results in a meaningful format, writing scientific papers for publication, and preparing reports for strategic projects have been a significant part of her research career. Her critical thinking skills are receptive to innovative concepts and recognise opportunities to generate and pursue novel ideas and solutions. She collaborated with stakeholders, and built, and maintained national and international networks for up-to-date awareness of advances in ideas and timely communication of the research progress.

Working at pilot scale on a research topic which is an industry trade secret enhanced her knowledge of intellectual property, patent search and commercialisation. Dealing with chemicals and large machinery at a pilot scale has made her vigilant about the health and safety of herself and the people around her. She managed a gold star-rated CSIRO laboratory as a lab custodian. She has supervised and mentored students and staff on their research and career journey. Her research has led to the first ever Australian-made carbon fibre from molecules with competitive properties to drive carbon fibre manufacturing in Australia for economic benefit.

She is passionate about data and digital technology. Her specialised skills in advanced data analytics will turn complex large data sets into clear insights. She has built a strong foundation of digital literacy with critical skillsets in analysis, visualisation and management of datasets which will improve work efficiency and enable her to solve more significant challenges. She is currently training in a data analysis boot camp from Monash University.
