Dr Joanna Turner is a Senior Lecturer (Physics) in the Faculty of Health Engineering and Sciences at the University of Southern Queensland. Her research area focuses on improving measurement and monitoring of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, with special interest in the impact of reflectance of UV radiation from the built environment, using smartphones in the measurement of UV radiation, and educating students and the public on understanding UV radiation. Her other outreach includes promoting STEM fields to students through the use of cyanotype media to explain how UV radiation influences our everyday lives.
