Why do violent extremism groups form? And how can we prevent them from forming?The Curtin Extremism Research Network (CERN), led by academics Dr Tim Rich and Dr Eva Bujalka, hopes to find answers to these questions. Established just five months ago, they’ve already held several events, including their sold-out launch that was keynoted by Labor member Dr Anne Aly MP.“These [domestic extremists] include involuntary celibates (incels), the alt-right, and vaccine sceptics,” says Dr Tim Rich. “The groups all have different views and goals. But at the end of the day, they are motivated by a sense that the prosperity they were promised would come from globalisation, liberalism and free market economies has not manifested for them.“While it’s easy to attribute the anti-vaccine unrest in Melbourne, for example, to just a few radical troublemakers, the stark reality is that a lot of ideas behind these incidences have growing salience in significant sections of our society. They’ve been seeping into our politics and digital spaces for years now. We would be complacent to think we are immune to such challenges here in Australia, especially if we enter a crisis.”Find out what the experts think about ending violent extremism in Australia by clicking on 'Curtin Commons' in the link in our bio.📷 Dr Tim Rich and Dr Eva Bujalka from CERN.#CurtinCommons #CurtinResearch #extremism

Congratulations to Dr Yalimay Jimenez, who recently graduated from Curtin with a PhD in chemistry."When my oldest child was three years old, he was diagnosed with Pervasive Developmental Disorder," says Yalimay. "At the time I was one unit away from taking my doctoral exams in Venezuela but I could barely manage to work due to the number of therapies my son had to go to. Our family was my number one priority. I decided to withdraw from this degree."Years later, my husband and I could not deal with the economic and humanitarian crisis in our home country anymore. We planned to move to Australia; we worked hard... we persevered. My husband said to me, 'now is your time.' He did all he could to support my dream. He is my best friend and my biggest ally."I have no regrets about my PhD journey. I was more mature, did it in my second language, and in a research group that pursues excellence. All the challenges I faced and overcame - it was worth it!"Yalimay is now working as an exploration geochemist but plans to continue her education and publish her Masters thesis while gaining further experience as a data scientist in the environmental and mineral industries.👏 Thank you for sharing your story 👏Tag a #CurtinGrad with an incredible story in the comments and we may feature them on our page!📷 Photo of Yalimay Jimenez and her family at her graduation ceremony, supplied by Yalimay.#CurtinGrad #PhD #education #learning #chemistry #geology #geologist #scientist #inspiring #Venezuela #student
