Ko wai koe?

Kia ora koutou, ko Angela Halliday taku ingoa.  Ko Murihiku (Southland) te whenua tupu. Nō Horowhenua te kāinga. He Partnerships Director au i Deep South Challenge.

When did you join the DSC and how do you describe what you do in one sentence?

I’ve been with the Deep South Challenge since 2018. I work closely with Engagement team and link in project teams with stakeholders where I can, with a focus on the Implications and Adaptation Programme.  I look after our Representative User Group and assist with events and other initiatives that help to disseminate our research out to those that might use it.  When projects are near completion I facilitate briefings with interested parties to ensure research is understood.

Why might a researcher want to get in touch with you?

If researchers are looking for a platform or opportunity to speak to stakeholders in a particular industry, central or local government, we can help facilitate this. Or even if they want to discuss where their research might help clarify thinking for policymakers or communities, we can make suggestions and linkages to help with these connections. In some cases, it can be helpful to use stakeholders as a sounding board during the research itself, and we can help with this.
My background is in the Primary Sector, so I have contacts in this area. We also have a lot of contacts as a Challenge and across other National Science Challenges as well. We might also approach you to speak about your research at relevant conferences, forums or webinars.

When you’re not working at DSC, where are you most likely to be?

I have two little boys so likely to be wrangling them or dealing with toddler meltdowns! I also do some work for a small Agricultural Research Trust.

How can people find you, and what’s your availability like?

I work most days apart from Friday.

You can email or phone: [email protected] or 0279473344.
