Personal profile


Bec is the Communications Manager for the Cooperative Research Centre for Transformations in Mining Economies (CRC TiME), a world-first research-led organisation focussed on reimagining post-mine transitions. 

CRC TiME is proud to be part of Australia’s research and innovation ecosystem, working alongside our peer Cooperative Research Centres to drive transformative change on industry-defined challenges. Our work is possible because of a A$30 million investment by the Australian Government as well as financial and in-kind support from more than 75 partners.

Bec was previously the Communications and Engagement Coordinator at the UWA Public Policy Institute, leading the Institute's communication and engagement strategy by liaising with key University and external stakeholders, and promoting Institute activities through events, social media, newsletters and the web.

With a background in marketing and a specialisation in research communications within the higher education sector, she brings expertise in both translating complex research to wide audiences and connecting researchers to their equivalent prospective collaborators in government, NGOs, not-for-profits and industry.

Bec is also a UWA Honorary Research Fellow with expertise on the contemporary American writer Don DeLillo's plays, having published Staging Don DeLillo with Routledge and various broader articles for The Conversation and Cultural Studies Review.

Aside from her interests in literature, policy and research communications, Bec is a keen indoor rock climber.
