Following the completion of my PhD, an opportunity presented itself at RMIT to manage the Biotechnology research lab and associated teaching facilities. I managed all aspects from purchasing to equipment servicing, staff and student inductions and local training as well as risk management of all activities. I then transitioned into a dual role of Safety & Senior Technical Manager in the Genetics Department at Melbourne University, where I had the opportunity to implement the components of the SafetyMap program across teaching and research activities within the department.
