About the team in the NECTAR office

The work of ECA volunteers of NECTAR, the NECTAR Co-Chairs and NECTAR Custodians, is supported by two NECTAR staff members.

Sophie Baker - NECTAR Coordinator

Hi, I am passionate about enabling Early-Career Academics (ECA) to be successful and lead a better future. I'm always keen to hear ideas on how we can do this better. I'd like to think any ECA can feel comfortable dropping in to see me, here, for a chat, any time.

Ashley Thomson - NECTAR Administrator

I have years of experience as both a casual sessional academic and a general staff administrative worker in the university sector. I am passionate about organising and supporting those people in our university whose teaching, researching and learning conditions need to be improved.

Sean Perera - NECTAR Secretary

I am delighted to be part of NECTAR in this new role. I was part of NECTAR during its inception and was a Co-chair in 2019. As an ANU researcher and lecturer, I am passionate about supporting others, and I look forward to working with the NECTAR Co-chairs and Custodians.
