Vice-President, Ecological Society of Australia, Queensland University of Technology

I work across research infrastructure management, science engagement and knowledge brokering, finding ways to improve the practice of collaborative science and to increase the uptake and use of science in policy, management, and decision-making. I completed my PhD at Flinders University, studying the ecology of Darwin's finches on the Galapagos Islands. Since then I've worked across university, government, and NGO contexts on projects ranging from water policy, to environmental education, and managing national research infrastructure.
