Emma Doyle lives in Armidale NSW and is employed as the sheep and wool lecturer at the University of New England (UNE). She is passionate about the Australian sheep industry and thoroughly enjoys teaching and research.

Emma completed her PhD and began working as a lecturer 10 years ago. She is currently the only sheep and wool lecturer at the UNE which provides specialised sheep and wool units across Australia to 10 other Universities.

Emma is in a unique position to support professional women in Agriculture, as one of few academic women in the School of Environmental & Rural Science at UNE.

Emma has mentored young undergraduate women through their studies and early career and is focused on retaining these highly educated, competent women in Agriculture and empowering them to consider leadership roles.

She believes for agriculture to be sustainable and profitable into the future, investment needs to be made in both innovative technologies and diversity of people in decision making roles.
