Dr Beth Fulton

Senior Principal Research Scientist - CSIRO

"To see real people get something out of it,  having really big effects on someone in a positive way is probably the best part of working in STEMM."

Beth lives on a farm outside of Hobart, and spends lots of time doing farm chores such as looking after goats, mending fences and installing water tanks. In addition to farm life, Beth also finds enjoyment with table-top role-playing games and even has a dedicated room in the family home for this activity that she shares with her family. She works as an ecosystem modeller where she helped develop whole-of-system models (from the food web to people), which assist in looking at marine systems, so we can play out different versions of the future and see which ones are sustainable and how to achieve the goals we desire.
