Robyn started her career in the publications department of the CSIRO in Melbourne, moving to Sydney in the eighties to take up the offer of a journalism cadetship.

She worked as a journalist and editor with the Yaffa Publishing Group for more than 15 years before transitioning into corporate communications; initially with the Sydney-based innovation agency, The One Centre, which worked with clients including Amex, Audi and McDonalds.

After stints with an architectural firm and an Australian Government science agency, Robyn moved into the arts sector, taking up the role of Communications Advisor with the Australia Council for the Arts, where she was responsible for communicating the activities of three artforms as well as the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Arts section.

Moving back into the scientific realm, Robyn spent five years working as Communications Coordinator with the Illawarra Health and Medical Research Institute, based at the University of Wollongong.

She recently returned to Melbourne and now works closely with the BehaviourWorks Australia team, including Content Curator Geoff Paine, on a range of tasks designed to communicate this fascinating and important area of science to a broad audience.
