My research uses DNA-based survey of soils and environments to help better understand the beneficial connections between microbes, soil, plants, and ecosystems - in the context of post-mining restoration, and in contributing to environmental and human health.
I work within the College of Science and Engineering in the lab group of Dr Martin Breed, both collaborating on and leading research activities, involving restoration ecology, genomics and healthy environmental microbiomes.
I have >15 years experience working in natural resource management, soil and data science, and have represented South Australia in national digital soil assessment (predictive modelling and mapping) projects under TERN and the Australian Collaborative Land Evaluation Program.
I also hold positions of Adjunct Senior Fellow in the School of Public Health at the University of Adelaide, and Senior NRM Scientist (Soil and Land) at the Department for Environment and Water, SA Government.
PhD Bioscience (Biodiversity, environmental microbiomes and human health); B Env Sc; BE (Mech, 1st class hons)
