I have over 20 years of experience conducting research across the biosecurity continuum to help solve national challenges. I currently lead work on Market Access within CSIRO’s Trusted Agrifood Exports Mission, a national, collaborative effort to improve access to high-value markets. I also lead a national, multi-disciplinary, multi-agency project to develop the science and technology supporting the management of trade-related biosecurity risks. I work closely with regulators, industry, the broader R&D community, and leading risk scientists across the world to achieve these goals.

I continue my interest in development work, including to support biosecurity R&D in Bhutan following my year there as volunteer plant protection advisor in 2016-7.
