Bev joined CSIRO in November 2018 after 12 years as an NHMRC Early Career and then Career Development Award Fellow at the University of South Australia and University of Adelaide.

She has published 120 peer-reviewed papers which have been cited over 3,500 times, 14 invited book chapter, editorial and commentaries and presented 24 invited talks at national/international scientific conferences.
