Background

Dr Neroli Graham is a Research Officer based at Tamworth Agricultural Research Institute, and completed a PhD investigating the agronomy of chickpea.

She joined NSW Agriculture in 1999 and has worked across a range of diverse cereal breeding and agronomy based projects.

Neroli currently provides statistical support for two projects that cover four states—the Irrigated Cereal and Canola Project, and the Improved Quality Characteristics in Canola Project.

She has recently completed a Master of Biostatistics from the University of Queensland and has a professional interest in plant genetics and biostatistics and their application towards plant improvement.
