Liz has worked in the Western Australian environment sector since finishing her PhD in Environmental Science at the University of Western Australia in 2000. She currently works for the National Malleefowl Recovery Team.
From 2005, whilst employed by Wheatbelt NRM, Liz worked alongside Avongro’s founder Monica Durcan developing native tree-crop industries for the Wheatbelt. Her work with Avongro and other partners assisted in the development of the sandalwood, brushwood and oil mallee industries in the region.
