Why Choose Us
Meet the team
Peter Keating has over 35 years practical experience in commercial science, starting and managing agricultural biotechnology and environmental businesses, working in a range of disciplines, from biochemistry and molecular biology, soil science, water science, plant nutrition and plant pathology.
He started his first business before completing his Ph.D. in Biochemistry at UWA, and has attracted talented and qualified scientists and engineers to work with him on challenging, multi-disciplinary research and services ever since. He is an adjunct Associate Professor at Murdoch University, and has supervised post-graduate student research throughout his career.
With extensive knowledge and experience of Western Australia’s flora and fauna, waterbodies and aquifers, soils and geology, as well as the regulatory framework, Peter is widely recognised as the state’s leading consultant across the environmental, horticulture and agriculture space.
Genevieve holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Natural Resource Management, with first class honours, from the University of Western Australia. She has over five years experience as a horticultural consultant and is involved in research for horticultural growers, as well as managing the analysis of water, soil and leaf tissue samples for chemical, microbial and pathology purposes.
Studied Environmental Science at the University of Applied Sciences in Mittweida, Germany. At Bioscience, since 2005, she applies her DNA technical skill to research projects and growth trials in relation to Bioprime. In addition, she analyses different soil and plant samples in our molecular biology laboratory for their microbial biodiversity or the presence of pathogens (mostly dieback).
Julia completed her Bachelor degree in Environmental Engineering including her honours at the Technical University of Darmstadt in 2017. At Bioscience, Julia consults and undertakes necessary field work in the areas of hydrogeology and geotechnical investigations. Julia is at home in the lab, where she conducts geotechnical soil testing and analysis for research and development.
Falko studied biology at the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg (Germany) before completing his PhD in marine microbiology at Cardiff University (UK). During his post-doctoral research at UWA (Perth, Australia), Falko investigated soil-plant-microbe interactions in semi-arid agricultural soils and developed his expertise in molecular ecology. At Bioscience, Falko runs the DNA lab applying his skills and experience to both internal and external R&D projects as well as plant pathology.
