Dr Peter Mayfield, CSIRO Executive Director for Environment, Energy and Resources, said Ms Coram had the unique depth of experience, breadth of environmental sciences domain knowledge and strong leadership credentials to ensure she was well qualified to build upon the organisation's innovation agenda across the land and water domain.

"Ms Coram's career spans 28 years of working to resolve natural resources management challenges," Dr Mayfield said. "She has a deep understanding of land and water sciences and their potential to constructively inform decision making.
