I hold a BAppSci (Chem), a GradDip (TechMgt) and a Cert IV in Government (Procurement and Contracting). I commenced a PhD in late 2018 to combine my science and business backgrounds. I’m planning on looking at organisational culture in virtual distributed research organisations such as Cooperative Research Centres (CRCs).
I've been a management consultant providing advice on strategic research management, large scale research funding and cooperative research arrangements, a research scientist in protein biochemistry/biotechnology, a patent examiner in biotechnology and managed a competitive Federal science granting program.
I still practice in my management consultant role and currently serve in a volunteer capacity on three boards.
