Vincent, Benita - Australian Bioinformatics Network/CSIRO

My research background is in aquatic animal health, predominately focused on amoebic gill disease of Atlantic salmon. I completed my PhD at the University of Tasmania and was also involved in teaching a number of practical units of the Bachelor of Aquaculture degree. 

After a stint in the public service in Canberra (2007-08), I returned to science to continue research on amoebic gill disease at CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research in Hobart. From 2011 I worked at the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry (DAFF) as Assistant Director in the Marine Pests and Biological Import Operations branch.

I am excited about the future of the Australian Bioinformatics Network and look forward to helping scientists gain benefit through sharing and connecting with each other in this challenging and diverse environment.
