My experience spans scientific research, science communication and community service.

In research I have worked at the interface between plant sciences and geology, researching questions of community ecology, plant functional traits, taphonomy and sedimentology.

I have strong foundations in geological mapping and considerable fieldwork and lab-based research experience with a diversity of scientific organisations and projects.

As a science communicator, I have primarily worked with two prestigious Victorian institutions –the Victorian Space Science Education Centre and Scienceworks Museum – where I delivered diverse STEM experiences to hundreds of people each week.

I also (intermittently) author a science blog called rockdocpress, and consult on / volunteer on other science communication escapades. I see the cultivation of STEM-literacy and engagement as a key element for the betterment of our world.
