Pip is from Tasmania where she completed her undergrad, honours and first three years of her career in fisheries research. Pip then escaped the cold of Tassie to the tropical Pacific – Tonga, Fiji and then Solomon Islands. Pip lived and worked in the Pacific for the next 5 years as an Australian Youth Ambassador for Development, a consultant on a fisheries and development project and then a coordinator for a regional knowledge management project. In 2013 Pip completed her PhD at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.  Pip is now employed as a scientist for WorldFish, and is based at the Centre.  Pip’s research focuses on understanding community-based fisheries management for improving food security in the Pacific.
