I'm an ecologist who studies plant (often grass) invasions and their impact on the environment. I am a passionate science communicator who strives to make science accessible for all folk.

I work in IT and enjoy learning about pretty much anything that doesn't make sense to me, so science comes in handy for this. I like being active and enjoy travelling whilst enjoying many a pint along the way

Just your atypical nerd and collector of hobbies. When I'm not elbow deep in an aquarium, or joyfully running down wikipedia rabbit holes I can be found napping. I'm also a raving leftie, intersectional feminist, secular humanist and founder of Brisbane Skeptics.

Here I am. I like colours that pop, music that bounces and photographs you can smell. I've spent my twenties shuffling and my thirties resting. I'm not able to knit the coral beds together with spawn and scuba but I can crochet some sealove with wool whenever needed.
