Madeleine Quirk

Biosecurity Officer, AUSVEG

Madeleine Quirk works as a Biosecurity Officer for AUSVEG’s Vegetable and Potato Biosecurity Program. In her role, Madeleine works with other biosecurity officers to effectively communicate the use of on-farm biosecurity practices, provide practical information for the improvement of on-farm biosecurity, and raise awareness of plant pest threats to the wider industry.

Madeleine is in the process of extending program objectives to urban stakeholders, as urban environments can be a year-round reservoir for pests.
