I grew up in the beautiful town of Margaret River and this instilled in me a love of Nature. I am passionate about issues relating to sustainability and how to address the challenge of retaining and improving our modern lifestyles whilst reducing environmental impact. This year I have commenced my PhD working in the area of biodegradable polymers. I also love working with children to help them discover the wonder of science and worked as a science presenter for the past year. I enjoy trail running, yoga, art and learning (about anything and everything).
