I have served on the Gene Technology Ethics and Community Consultative Committee (GTECCC) as an advisor to the Office of Gene Technology Regulator and am the Secretariat for the charity Aquaculture without Frontiers representing the International women’s network (http://www.aquaculturewithoutfrontiers.org/).
I completed a PhD in 2011 in the discipline of food policy, investigating the social consequences of the CSIRO Omega-3 Project aimed at developing a land-based source of long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, normally sourced from seafood. This involved the development of genetically modified oilseeds that could be incorporated into animal feeds and products for human consumption.
Our vision is to empower people (women and youth in particular) globally and our mission is to be an advocate for the creation of sustainable food production systems by promoting equality.
