Head of Government Relations
Research Australia

Lucy joined Research Australia as Head of Government Relations in May 2016 bringing to the organisation her experience and expertise in Government decision-making and policy development processes.

Previously, Lucy was Manager of Government and Community Relations at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation where she managed complex political issues and lead a number of successful funding applications for the organisation, most notably as lead drafter of a successful funding bid for a multimillion-dollar national nuclear medicine facility.

Lucy’s experience in Government was developed through various political and bureaucratic roles, including as Deputy Chief of Staff to a Government Minister and in state and federal agencies including the Commonwealth Treasury and the Department of Premier and Cabinet. Her expertise in policy development is enhanced by her legal background, having previously practiced law.
