Beiha-Malen Yáñez [BSc Env Sc 2006]

After completing my degree at Flinders, I then did Honours in Environmental Biology at Adelaide University 2006. I met my partner Ian Williams (BSc Env Sc 2006) as we both did the same degree together. We are still in touch with many friends from Flinders and have great memories from that time. I’ve worked as a scientific officer for the Department for Environment and Heritage in SA then moved to north QLD and am currently working as an experimentalist with the Department of Primary Industries & Fisheries. I’m moving to Perth shortly to work as an environmental scientist with Outback Ecology, a consulting company for the mining industry. I gained so much from my degree and look forward to developing my career in environmental science.
