Samantha Hall

Cottesloe, Western Australia

Built environment consultant

While recovering from brain surgery at 26, Samantha vowed she would make an impact on the world. This led her to switch to a career in science, and eventually take on the challenge of improving the health of Australian workplaces. Samantha has created a cloud-based software application called Rate My Space. Through an app, employees can give feedback about their work environment, helping companies to create healthier, more functional spaces. Samantha trialled Rate My Space across 66 Curtin University buildings, resulting in 1,000 staff providing feedback. She is using her grant to share it with other universities, schools and offices.
