Erin completed a Bachelor of Science (Agribusiness) at Curtin University with her Honours focusing on frost management in broad-acre cereal production. Her involvement in the family farm (broad-acre mixed cropping and merino sheep) in the Eastern Wheatbelt, WA, kickstarted an interest in building resilience in dryland farming systems.
This curiosity led her to undertake several research internships in Nepal and Ethiopia to explore agriculture on a global scale. Before joining Select Carbon, Erin was working at an Agriculture R&D Centre in the Arava Desert, Israel, exploring the potential of microalgae production in desert farming systems.
Through her role with Select Carbon, Erin coordinates and undertakes field work operations across pastoral properties in WA. Bringing with her, a blend of hands on farming experience, a science background, and an understanding of rural and remote life on the land. She is passionate about engaging in on-ground actions that are co-beneficial to a pastoral business and restoring landscape function.
