Dr Sally Bound

Welcome to STEMmas, our Christmas celebration of women in STEM!

Our first amazing woman in STEM is Dr Sally Bound, who has developed recommendations for chemical thinning of the Packham pear.

Sally is a “Senior Research Fellow at the University of Tasmania, Australia. She works in the Perennial Horticulture Centre within the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture. Her research focuses on crop manipulation and fruit quality in orchard tree crops, and on finding solutions to soil degradation. In particular, Sally works closely with industry to optimize crop yields and fruit quality. She also provides technical information and advice to orchardists and industry groups, and conducts workshops, seminars and training courses throughout Australia.”
