Dr Heather Bray holds a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture from the University of Sydney however her career path has taken her away from direct agricultural research into the humanities.
She still has a deep interest in the science of agriculture, but she's approaching it from a different place, looking at how society and the sciences view each other.
In our chat we talk about the pressures of being a scientist and a mother, the differing approached overseas, and the importance of keeping the humanity in science.
