One such proposal she helped formulate is known as the Peccei-Quinn theory of 1977. Quinn transferred to Stanford University from the University of Melbourne, obtaining her doctorate in 1967. She had married in 1966. Her honours include the Dirac Medal (2000) from the ICTP, the Oskar Klein Medal (2008), and the Sakurai Prize (2013) from the American Physical Society (APS).
