New Year Honours: New Zealand's top scientist Dr Juliet Gerrard becomes a dame

Caroline Williams Reporter from Central Leader

Asked how she feels about being made a dame, Dr Juliet Gerrard​ is somewhat lost for words, an unfamiliar position for the woman whose job is distilling the most up-to-date scientific information for those making the decisions that will shape our future.

Gerrard, currently Jacinda Ardern’s chief science advisor, has been named a Dame Companion of the New Zealand Order of Merit​ in the New Year Honours.

While she hasn’t really processed what it means on a personal level, it hasn’t stopped the Freemans Bay resident from sharing the news with her 75-year-old mum in the United Kingdom, who got a kick out of getting the good news on her birthday.
