Gayle’s first career was as an Agricultural teacher, utilizing her farming background. She returned to university in 2010 and began her studies into population dynamics, combining an interest in mathematics and harvest maximization. As this is such a small field she was very pleased to begin a PhD with Michael Renton (UWA) and the AHRI team, with its highly skilled friendly staff and focus on usable outcomes. Gayle’s PhD focused on minimising the build-up of herbicide resistance in annual ryegrass via population modelling.
