Huw Morgan is Manager of Media Liaison based in Adelaide. He has been with us for about six years – mostly based in Canberra. Before joining CSIRO he had worked as a journalist with News Ltd, media flack for a State Premier, rural journalist, fruit packer, cowboy in Wyoming, grader driver and jackeroo in NSW and SA.
While he likes modern gadgets and technology, he still uses a typewriter for letters and memos. He owns five typewriters and two Coolgardie safes. His profile picture was taken many years ago.
Her car radio is broken at the moment, which leaves her far too much quiet time to ponder the universe. Also on Twitter: @LouMorrissey
Carol Saab is Communication Manager for Social & Video. This means she works on the really fun stuff with really creative people. Her background is in digital media and television so the role is somewhat of a match made in heaven.
She has an outstanding ability to count the letters in words within milliseconds, useful when one is attempting a crossword. Her friends think this makes her mildly autistic.
Vanessa Hill is the Social Media Manager and spends her days on Facebook, Twitter and Youtube. Sometimes she looks for ‘like’ buttons in emails.
She is the mother of a Labradoodle so naturally tweets as @nessyhill and @LunaLabradoodle. Some nights she spends a lot of time outside with a telescope, which has led her housemate to believe she’s really a vampire.
A total news-junkie turned tech-geek, Dan Chamberlain is a Communications Advisor for the Information Sciences Group. Despite being occasionally mistaken for Fall Out Boy or Adam Lambert, Dan is actually more much in tune with apps, robots and wireless networks than the world of punk-rock.
Chris blogs for our Environment Group, bringing you the latest from our biodiversity, climate and water research. He loves all things nature and just generally likes when things are wild.
He is a Wiradjuri fella and he likes to write. His favourite tools are pad and pencil, even though he gained his pen licence in 1994. He tweets as @mrchrismck.
Steph Overton is the Social Media Advisor. When she’s not looking after the blog, LinkedIn and Pinterest, you’ll find her in the kitchen baking delicious treats (and posting pictures of them on Instagram).
Crystal blogs for our MMM Group. As well as being the sound you make before eating something delicious, MMM stands for Manufacturing, Materials and Minerals – think printable solar cells, biomedical devices and 3D mineral maps.
