Amongst other qualifications, Robyn has a PhD from the National University of Singapore, a Masters of Engineering from UWA and a Bachelor of Science Mathematics from The University of Queensland.
Of her time at St Margaret’s Robyn, said “On top of a good education, I was allowed to have a go at so many different activities, including music (piano), musicals, many sports, debating and school trips to the snow. We could have a go, try again – whether we succeeded or not. This builds the ability to explore, have a go, curiosity and resilience – all very important when venturing into new territories. We were also not constrained around what we dreamt of doing post school.”
