Gigi Williams is the Director of the Educational Resource Centre (ERC) at Women's & Children's Health in Melbourne. She holds a Bachelor of Applied Science Degree in Photography from the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology and is a Fellow of three learned societies; the Royal Photographic Society (UK), the Biological Photographic Association (USA) and the Australian Institute of Medical & Biological Illustration(AIMBI).

She has 20 years of experience as a practitioner and manager, during which she has also held a number of offices in AIMBI including that of National President. Over the years she has been recognised by a number of awards, scholarships and prizes, that has spanned three principal areas of professional activity - photomicrography, photogrammetry (the measurement of three-dimensional shape from photographs) and invisible radiation photography (infrared and ultraviolet photography).

Her investigation into invisible radiation photography in medicine and her work in this area resulted in a 50,000 word thesis for her Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society in 1991. This was followed by a number of papers for various journals including the seminal series in the Journal of the Biological Photographic Association from 1993 to 1994, which are amongst the most cited references in the field. She was a recipient of a BPA best paper award in the States and the BPA Lou Gibson Gold award for best paper in this field.

She is the author of 12 papers or chapters in international refereed journals or books and has presented 26 original papers at national and international conferences. Many of these were published under the name Gigi Nieuwenhuis.
