Carly sits in CSIRO's Enterprise Project Management Office (EPMO) as a Change Manager supporting IMT with strategic digital transformation programs. She is also playing a key role in developing a One-CSIRO Change Management Framework for the organisation and reinvigorated the Business Unit Change Lead (BUCL) network in 2021.

Her current role includes:
* Providing strategic advice as a member of the IMT Leadership team
* Mitigating the 'people impact' of changes to IT systems and processes
* Demonstrating the value of adopting new digital ways to perform scientific research
* Leading a small team of Change and Communications Advisors to support IMT communication and engagement across CSIRO
* Developing a One-CSIRO Change Management Framework and embedding the framework in CSIRO project management processes

Prior to her current role
Carly worked for several years as a research assistant at the University of Melbourne looking at DNA prime, protein boost vaccines against HIV-1. Finding that lab work (and wriggling mice) weren't quite for her, she completed a Grad. Dip. of Science Communication with the Science Circus at Questacon. Returning to Melbourne she discovered her first CSIRO niche at CSIRO Education (now CSIRO Education and Outreach) working closely with colleagues to educate, entertain and engage a variety of audiences with science. Carly has project managed a number of science community engagement events over the years for audiences ranging from industry groups, to schools, to comedians.

As part of the Inspiring Australia program in Victoria, coordinated by CSIRO, Carly was heavily involved in National Science Week for eight years, creating events across the country that showcase the importance of science in everyday life and demonstrate the value of scientific research from CSIRO and research groups across Australia.

Carly moved to the role of Change Advisor in Organisational Development and Change to support the Enterprise Systems Improvement program in 2017 before taking up the role of Organisational Change Manager for IMT.
