Welcome to our first newsletter of 2020. It’s been an eventful few months, however, the most exciting activity in recent weeks was seeing eight of our FGC students graduating in December. It has also been wonderful to see our students entering the workforce. Both Drew Portman and Shiwangni Rao have positions with Agriculture Victoria in Horsham; Michelle Toutounji has commenced a technical role with Arnott’s in Sydney and Esther Callcott is working at Charles Sturt University’s School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences.
We are also excited to welcome Borkwei Nignpense back to the centre. Borkwei completed Honours research with us last year and will commence his PhD with us soon. Our visiting students continue to make important contributions to the Centre and we were delighted to have Sofia Speranza spend some time with us. Sofia joined us from Italy, via AEGIC in North Ryde where she also completed a project on grain quality.
We look forward to updating you throughout 2020 to keep you informed of FGC activities.
