I am biogeochemist with a specialisation in isotope methods, to quantify sediment and soil-based biogeochemical processes. Of particular interest is developing tools which combine modelling and monitoring approaches in order to gain a better understanding of how anthropogenic changes impact key biogeochemical reactions.

As part of the Trusted AgriFoods Exports Mission, I am leading a work package aimed at verifying the provenance of agricultural products, linking traditional environmental measurements with rapid scanning, remote sensing, and digital supply chains. Additionally, I am part of the Agriculture and Food Impact Initiative, leading the Trusted Supply Chains impact area.

Locally, I am the point of contact for the Waite Campus Indigenous Artist in Residence Program, which explores the nexus of western and indigenous knowledge using art to translate science.
