Biography

My ambition is to create meaningful and scalable impact in the response and recovery of landscapes after extreme bushfires in Australia.

 

My approach will be interdisciplinary, interweaving science, technology and traditional practices to generate scalable and targeted benefits across our unique Australian landscapes. I enjoy developing and testing innovative concepts and solving complex problems.

 


I also enjoy going on long hikes with my very energetic Kelpie-cross (Parker), reading and gardening.

Skills & Expertise

  • Ecology and conservation biology
  • Innovation and entrepreneurship
  • Measuring social impact
  • STEM education
  • Problem solving

"My greatest achievement was co-founding Empower Education, a social enterprise that sought to help primary school students work through concepts that are presumed knowledge upon transition into secondary school. This allowed for any difficulties to be addressed at a pivotal stage, enabling greater and more targeted support for disadvantaged students, who would otherwise be left behind."
