There are skill gaps and shortages in this new growth area and the University of Tasmania has projects they are working on and opportunities for NW industry to engage in.

Before joining the University of Tasmania, Anna was a Dean of School and a lecturer in information security and data management at Flinders University following 4 years as Head of School for RMIT in Vietnam. She has also been an international higher education quality assurance consultant and has sat on the TEQSA panel of academic experts since 2011.
