I am a highly collaborative leader in science who is passionate about research

I have brought cutting edge technologies, industry engagement and collaboration to a relatively traditional science field for practical and real-world conservation outcomes. I have extensive experience in delivering large complex projects which contribute to environmental, social and economic benefits. I am a strong communicator who values an inclusive and positive working environment. I use my broad scientific knowledge and experience to train and mentor excellent and skilled researchers at all career stages. I have held numerous volunteer leadership positions as Vice President of the Biological Sciences EMCR Association (BSEMCRA) at the University of Adelaide, Councilor of the Society of Australian Systematic Biologists and Chairperson for the Management Committee of Parkside Community Childcare Incorporated. I currently hold a school executive role as Associate Head of Diversity and Inclusion (Biological Sciences) at The University of Adelaide.
