Chief Operating Officer

I am a marketing and communications professional with 20 years’ experience across the broadcasting, digital media and publishing sectors.

In 2017, I joined the Institute from the ABC where I held a series of senior executive roles in marketing and communications, most recently leading the brand strategy for ABC News.

I enjoy strategic marketing, with a focus on complex and innovative discoveries, which are at the heart of what we do at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute.
