Debra joined the museum in 1993 and worked in an interpretation and supervisory position on the public galleries. In 2001 she joined the Geosciences program working in a technical role on remote field collection and the laboratory.  When Geosciences moved its collection and research facility in 2002, she took up a new duel position as site/operations manager and geosciences technician responsible for the replication laboratory. She now works solely as a senior technician in Geosciences.

A major replication project in 2005 was a request by the Smithsonian Institute in Washington DC for a replication of the Australian armoured dinosaur, the Minmi, for research and public display.

 

Debra’s role now encompasses research, correlating, conservation, preparation and cataloguing, as well as illustration and reproducing replicas of fossil material for research and public display both in Australia and Internationally.

One of her current projects is working with the Geoscience team on research of the flora and fauna of the Redbank Plains fossils.
