Becca, an interdisciplinary researcher with a career spanning the space, atmospheric and health sciences, has been named as an influencer in the Science category. Becca said:

I am extremely proud to feature for the first time on the Shaw Trust Disability Power 100 list. Alongside my academic work I collaborate with several organisations including the SSI and individual research projects to develop and promote disability inclusion in our policies, practices and research. It's rewarding to have recognition for these efforts to reduce systemic ableism.
