Charles Sturt PhD candidate and Graham Centre member Ms Brooke Kaveney is the winner of the Country Education Foundation of Australia (CEF) Alumni of the Year Award.
“It is an honour to be awarded Alumni of the Year. Previous winners have accomplished so much and I feel privileged and humbled that my work has been recognised to be of a similar standard,” Ms Kaveney said.
Ms Kaveney has submitted her thesis examining the effect of the nitrification inhibitor 3,4-dimethylpyrazole phosphate on soil mineral nitrogen processes, and is starting a post-doctoral research position with the Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR).
She's pictured here in southern Vietnam sampling saline soil in rice-shrimp farming systems as part of an earlier ACIAR project.
