Science & Innovation Award


I am the delighted recipient of a 2016 Science & Innovation Award for Young People in Fisheries, Forestry & Agriculture in the CSIRO Health & Biosecurity category. Prizes were announced last week in Canberra at ABARES Outlook but I was too occupied by my data collection to attend!

This award will support my ongoing research into the capacity of detection dogs to contribute to hawkweed eradication on mainland Australia. With the help of a research assistant, I’ll be building new time- and distance-based detection models, then taking the models to the International Statistical Ecology Conference in Seattle.

To coincide with the award, I’ve written an article for the University’s Pursuit website.
