Scholarship Project

There is very limited research in Australian cider as the majority of the research is European and it is unknown how our apples and resulting ciders may differ.

 

Through conducting the proposed research project I will be able to connect key apple and cider industry members within the international research community to facilitate development of new and innovative production tools which will lead to practice change and social benefits

Biography

As an Agricultural Science graduate, my passion lies in Agriculture, problem solving and being practical. I believe that research in Agriculture is key to feed our growing population.

I am a horse rider and have completed in pony club, eventing, dressage, and represented my state in showing. Training young horses is both challenging and rewarding. I am currently training 3 horses, two that I bred, each being trained for different disciplines, eventing, showing and dressage.

 

I am the Tasmanian 2017 chair of CanTeen, the organisation for young people living with cancer. Advocacy and social change are also important to me.
