Scientist turned engineer; Jessica left the science field in an effort to scale her impact on the world.

Now set to combine her passions and skills, she plans to bridge the gap between councils and the people they serve.
A policy nerd who went on to love tech; Edmund has delivered software used by millions around Australia.
Torn between his passion for these two very siloed fields, he set out to combine both and illustrate the unique value of their fusion.
