An Inspirational role model: Professor Daphne Jackson’s stellar journey and legacy

A lifelong campaigner for women in science and engineering careers, Daphne Jackson was a distinguished theoretical nuclear physicist who became Professor of Physics at Surrey at the age of 34, in 1971. The University of Surrey are looking back on Professor Jackson’s incredible life, which was cut short by her untimely death in 1992. To celebrate her achievements and the many women she helped to inspire, 2021 has been designated the Surrey Women in Science and Engineering Year. Special events will be held to mark International Women in Engineering Day in June and Daphne Jackson Day in the autumn.
