SPONSOR: Christine Allard, Director facilities and Services -The Australian National University
I've been at the Australian National University in a variety of rolls since early 2002, currently I'm the Space Manager, responsible for the university's space data, utilization and property reporting, and the Drawing Office which houses all building drawings/operating manuals and associated planning documentation. The team also manages the initial requests for new or additional space and and early project planning. Previous to this I was the Site Operations Manager at Siding Spring Observatory, Coonabarabran and a Project Officer for the Colleges of Science Building Project which revitalized Chemistry and Biology research and teaching at the ANU. Prior to transferring into facilities and construction, my early career at ANU was spent in the Department of Earth and Marine Sciences and the Fenner School of Environment and Society. Currently I am also a member of the Self Assessment Team for the Athena SWAN program under Science in Australian Gender Equity (SAGE).
