Abstract

Professor Mazlan Othman was born in Serembam, Malaysia, in 1951. She had an exceptional aptitude for mathematics from a young age, and came to the University of Otago on a Colombo Plan scholarship. Othman graduated Bachelor of Science with honours in 1975, and gained her PhD in Physics in 1981; she was the first woman to do so. After returning to Malaysia as the country’s first astrophysicist, she helped to create parts of the curriculum for the National University of Malaysia. Othman has also worked for the United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs under Kofi Annan and Ban Ki-Moon. This report by Othman contains chapters extracted from her 1981 PhD thesis – ‘Optical Investigations of the Atmosphere’.
