Personal profile

Felicity grew up on a farm at Junee in southern NSW and completed her undergraduate degree at CSU, studying management of dual-purpose wheat for her Honours in 2004. Felicity was the research coordinator for local farming systems group FarmLink from 2005-2008, before commencing her PhD at CSU. Her PhD focused on better understanding the relationship between crop development and early vigour in wheat, specifically the influence of genes controlling flowering behaviour. In 2015, she was appointed as a Research Scientist at NSW Department of Primary Industries at Wagga Wagga Agricultural Institute. Her research focuses on understanding the drivers of phenology in wheat, barley and oats and using management to adjust timing of crop development to optimise yield and adaptation across variable environments. Felicity is passionate about research engagement with grain growers and delivering outcomes for industry. She was awarded the Australian Society of Agronomy Young Agronomist of the Year in 2017 and GRDC Emerging Leader award in 2019. Felicity joined the School of Agricultural, Environment and Veterinary Sciences in 2022 as Senior Lecturer in Crop Science.
