Kylie Ireland is a CRC PhD student at Murdoch University in Western Australia. Kylie chose to do her PhD with the CRCNPB for the support and networking it could provide, as well as the scholarship, learning and travel opportunities.


"I decided to do my PhD to improve my scientific analysis and networking skills while attaining an academic edge, as well as for the opportunity to build my own research skills and direct my own research interests."


Kylie lives in the Perth suburb of Coolbellup, east of Fremantle, which she describes as one of Australia's best kept secrets - close to the coast and with a fabulous vibe!


Kylie is quite a traveller and would like to visit Namibia to see the rolling dunes, the gorgeous game, and the abandoned towns covered in sand. She believes finding yourself through travel is invaluable and is proud of her solo trips.


In the future, Kylie wants to work internationally, informing policy decisions regarding plant biosecurity or in the marriage of conservation and development goals. She would also love the chance to teach.
