I am an agroecologist. I’m inspired by the deep commitment that the regenerative community has towards enhancing the landscape, building strong, vibrant communities and producing healthy, nutritious food.
At Soils for Life, my role helps to share the innovations, experience and insights of land managers using regenerative approaches to support wider adoption. Soils for Life is a partner in the Soil CRC (https://soilcrc.com.au/), the biggest collaborative soil research effort in Australia’s history. By working with others in the Soil CRC, I help to bring the research community and other industry groups together with regenerative landscape managers to improve understanding of regenerative approaches and support continuing innovation in regenerative agriculture.
My research interests also include climate recovery through landscape regeneration. I am working to develop modelling, system design and monitoring tools for regenerative agriculture as part of a research team at the Australian National University. These tools aim to embrace the complexity and adaptive nature of agricultural systems as well as support the integration of carbon drawdown, biodiversity and agricultural production.
