She has led multi-disciplinary teams and research programs for Government and Industry with an emphasis on building soil carbon to support productive, profitable, and sustainable farming systems. Susan’s research for NSW Department of Primary Industries, and her role with Select Carbon, focuses on understanding how management can influence the biogeochemical cycling of carbon; how we can integrate modelling, measurement, and mapping techniques to reliably estimate soil carbon stocks and investigating innovative strategies to build soil carbon under pastures, cropping and rangeland systems.

Susan is passionate about farm ready research and evidence-based decisions. Susan continues to work closely with producers to identify creative and reliable solutions to increase farm and landscape productivity, soil carbon and farming system resilience.
