Abstract to come shortly.

Lynne did her undergraduate degree many yeas ago at Sydney Uni. From 1987 to 2013 she was a physics and chemistry teacher at various secondary colleges in Canberra. Between 2000-2001 she did Graduate Diploma at ANU in Geology, and started studying the Upper Jurassic fish of the Talbragar fossil fish bed.  She enrolled in an M.Sc. but found it to be too much work to do with my job.  She retired from teaching at end of 2013. 

In 2014 she became the part time voluntary curator of the collection of rocks, minerals and fossils from the old Geology Department of ANU. This collection was moved to a new building at the end of 2014 and in 2015 she began cataloging  the new locations of all the specimens in the collection.

In 2016 she began a PhD on Mesozoic fish from Talbragar at RSES, ANU.
