Previously a research scientist, investigating biomaterials with focus on intrinsic properties of wool. I've worked with cattle, humans and dogs investigating odour, flammability, bio-degradeability and skin health.
My PhD focused on a biomaterial wound dressing, then I worked in the textile industry before leaping into R&D on the other side of the world in 2002.
This diverse experience has led me to the role of team leader PMO to focus on supporting scientists to deliver high quality science.
