Research Output per year
I am a Research Assistant at the School of Agriculture and Environment in Agricultural and Resource Economics. Since completing a Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics with first class Honours at UWA I have worked on projects for the Plant Biosecurity CRC and Honey Bee Product CRC.
Prior to study and a career in research I worked in the banking and finance industry for over 16 years. I also have a diverse skill set and background experience in agriculture in both Queensland and Western Australia in a range of industries such as horticulture, grains and dairy.
As a researcher who enjoys understanding and assessing the dynamics of biological and economic production systems my projects focus on bio-economic modelling. The projects for the Plant Biosecurity CRC involved developing bio-economic models and analysis of investment into pre-breeding for high priority biosecurity threats and past pest incursions affecting the grains and horticulture industries.
I am now working on a Honey Bee Product CRC project valuing bee flora in native bush apiary sites in Western Australia. The interaction of honey bees, available natural resources and the migration of hives across the state is an excellent introduction to the beekeeping industry.
