Dr. Catherine Ball, Wired for Wonder

“I don’t think life is linear in any way, shape or form.”

- Dr Catherine Ball

Joining me today is Dr. Catherine Ball who is an author, founder, and ethics advocate working across global projects where robotics and new technology meet environmental protection. 

She is also the CEO of an Australian startup working with the application of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems aka drone technology across remote communities, schools, industry, and citizen scientists.

In this conversation Catherine shares with us what drives her creativity, what excites her about technology and why we trip ourselves up with trying to “get it right”.


We explore the idea of having various career paths and how those various experiences can be supportive for our lives - and our careers.
