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

I lead national multi-institutional and multi-disciplinary collaborative research teams in using innovative new genetic technologies to achieve real-world biomonitoring solutions for legislative compliance and conservation management of national priority threatened ecological communities – especially groundwater dependent ecosystems. I have extensive experience in delivering large complex projects which contribute to environmental, social and economic benefits and am recognized for my ability to initiate and maintain long-lasting external industry based research partnerships. I use my broad scientific knowledge and experience to train and mentor excellent and skilled researchers at all career stages. I currently hold an executive role as Associate Head of Diversity and Inclusion (School of Biological Sciences) at The University of Adelaide.
