I am keen to use my knowledge of survey and study design, data analysis, and behaviour in a variety of applications and am passionate about the translation of scientific knowledge. I believe in the value of excellent science and the power of diversity to solve real world problems.

Currently, I bring my understanding of behavioural science and experience in translational research to a variety of interdisciplinary projects investigating or promoting healthy lifestyles. I have vast experience in project management which I can apply to a variety of areas, including randomised controlled trials. I am interested in novel technologies and how these can be best utilised to collect real-time data and deliver wider-reaching, behaviourally-based interventions.

Other Interests

First Tae kwon do, Adelaide University, Club Executive Officer (2008 - 2017)
I trained in tae kwon do for ten years. I really enjoyed the combination of physical and mental workout that it provides. Most of all, I loved that your greatest competitor is you.

Cactus and Succulent Society of South Australia, member (2017 - current)
I have a succulent garden that is constantly expanding.

Street Machine Association of South Australia, member (2018 - current)
I have three classic motorcycles: a v50 Moto Guzzi that has been customised into a cafe racer, my dad's 1971 Honda CL450 and a z250 Kawasaki that I have been 'restoring' for 10 years. I enjoy the participating in the toy run and in the Bay-to-Birdwood with my husband in his XB GT Falcon.

I used to be fairly active in the amateur filmmaking scene in SA. I have produced, written and directed several short films. For the last several years, this interest has evolved more to watching than making films. I have diverse tastes but a Utopian sci-fi will, more times than not, hit the spot.
