Current Job: Science extension with rbutr (install rbutr and get both sides of the discussion)
Climate and Agronomic Extension at an organisation in Western Australia
I'm a scientist who is primarily involved in the agriculture industry as an extension specialist. One of the big failings of science is communicating complex information to the people who need the information, at a level they will understand.
My current focus is in climate change extension to rural Australia as part of a national program being trialed in Western Australia.
