Anneliese Austin is an environmental science graduate from Southern Cross University who is currently working with Bees for Sustainable Livelihoods, conducting her PhD research on gender equity in beekeeping in Papua New Guinea (PNG) and Fiji. She was motivated to pursue a career in agricultural research for development after being offered an opportunity as an undergraduate student to be a part of an ongoing Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research (ACIAR) project. This ongoing project aims to support rural smallholder beekeepers, government, and development agencies to create more sustainable, equitable, productive, and profitable Pacific honey bee industries. Her main advice to anyone who wants to be involved in agricultural research for development is “Go for it! Take every opportunity you can and try to surround yourself with like-minded people who share your passion.”
