I hold two appointments at UQ. My first appointment is as Associate Lecturer (teaching-focussed) with the UQ School of Biological Sciences. In this role, I optimise student learning, performance and assessment in large-cohort first and second year biology courses. My second appointment is as Engagement Officer (Marketing and Outreach) with the UQ Faculty of Science Engagement Unit. In this role, I work with UQ Future Students to deliver unique on-campus laboratory and science-career related activities to Year 10-12 students. I also represent the Faculty in key recruitment markets delivering offshore seminars and lab experiences in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, and China. Both my academic and professional roles are integrated in a key Faculty initiative supporting senior teachers through multi-modal Teacher Continuing Professional Development workshops to address the new suite of science and mathematics General Senior Syllabuses. Specifically for the Biology syllabus, I develop and deliver content focussed on basic data analysis and interpretation, cladistics, theoretical, and applied ecology. I completed my PhD with the School of Biological Sciences, The University of Queensland (UQ), Australia, in 2017. The over-arching theme of my work involved insect-plant interactions: understanding the intricate relationships between crop plants and their insect pests enable us to employ pest management strategies that ultimately reduce our reliance on insecticides. This research was undertaken from a behavioural ecology and chemical ecology approach.
