Summary

Anne-Marie Grisogono was born in Yugoslavia and migrated to Australia with her mother, a chemical engineer, who fostered her interest in science. Anne-Marie 'discovered' physics at Adelaide University and went on to attain a PhD in mathematical physics, as well as marrying, working part-time, and bringing up two children. Anne-Marie helped form the South Australian Branch of Scientists Against Nuclear Arms (SANA) in 1984 in response to the escalation of the arms race. Within days SANA identified their first project assessing scientific reports about residual plutonium contamination at Maralinga.
