WDSN Profiles

At the WDSN, we think it's important to highlight the incredible contributions our supporters and followers make to the defence and national security field. To do this, we have created a series of snapshot profiles looking at what inspired them to join the industry and advice they can offer to other women wanting to get into this area.

In the latest profile in ASPI’s Women in Defence and Security’s interview series. Olivia Nelson speaks to Dr Cassandra Steer, Deputy Director and Mission Specialist at ANU’s Institute of Space. They chat all things space, including how Cassandra ended up working in space law, the significance of the Artemis mission and challenges in space, such as mega constellations.
