Senior Knowledge Transfer Specialist

I help scientists communicate their often complex research finding to non-specialist audiences including producer and producer groups, agrologists, students, commodity specialists, and other agriculture decision makers. I work across many disciplines: oilseed, cereals, horticulture, livestock, breeding, entomology, molecular biology, plant physiology, plant pathology, irrigation, and ag-ecology to name a few. In my work, I focus on plain language communications and use the most appropriate technologies to communicate with my audiences using both traditional (factsheets, manuals, workshops, displays, models) and digital tools (apps, online tools, videos, presentations).

Current research and/or projects

My background is in horticulture science and plant stress physiology. In my role as knowledge transfer officer, I work with research teams across a broad spectrum of agriculture science:

- irrigation

- forage production

- rangeland management

- entomology

- horticulture

- agroecology

- agroforestry

- plant pathology

- germplasm conservation
