I am an environmental scientist, specializing in water resources management and environmental reporting. I relish the power of data and effective science communication to inform and inspire positive environmental stewardship.
I have a diversity in experience in research, technical writing and applied environmental monitoring. Recently, I have focussed my efforts in the development of digital environmental reporting products. I believe these tools can be effectively deployed to engage stakeholders and inform decision-making.
I have worked in a variety of scientific and digital-development roles. I have undergraduate level degrees in biomedical science and environmental science, as well as a PhD in water resources management. I've studied microplastic pollution on New Zealand's coastlines, as well glacial-fed rivers in both New Zealand and Antarctica. I also drafted the national "Plastics in the Environment" report with the Royal Society in 2019.
Outside of work, I spend most of my time in the outdoors mountain biking, whitewater kayaking, surfing, skiing and hiking in the beautiful playground that is Aotearoa.
