Territory Manager: New Zealand
Alayna has a background in bovine genetics and biotechnology with plenty of hands on laboratory experience. She started with Millennium Science New Zealand in 2011, initially only looking after North Island customers, now she looks after the whole country. Alayna gets a real buzz from assisting researchers to understand the latest technology across a range of applications and seeing their research develop and have an international impact. She also has a passion for science communication and education, routinely visiting schools to discuss her career, carry out experiments and get students excited about the range of fantastic career options available in science.
Field Applications Scientist
Beata completed her PhD at RMIT University in agricultural molecular biology and genetics, then moved into medical research, investigating inflammation induced insulin resistance at the Baker IDI Heart and Diabetes Institute in Melbourne. After 7 years as a post doctoral research fellow, Beata joined Millennium Science in 2009 as a Field Applications Scientist, primarily looking after Affymetrix. Since then, she has branched out into the cell biology portfolio, and enjoys working with scientists from diverse research fields, and providing support in the wide range of cutting edge technologies that Millennium Science represents.

Territory Manager: Victoria
Howard was raised and educated in Africa and the UK. Following completion of his Honours degree in Biotechnology at the University of Leeds in 1990, he enjoyed a career in clinical embryology spanning 17 years and four continents. Howard made a career change into scientific sales in 2008, where he has enjoyed the exposure to a wider range of life sciences and has been able to hone his communication skills. Following stints with Quantum Scientific and Beckman Coulter, Howard joined Millennium Science in 2014 as a Victorian Territory manager, and loves the range of cutting edge technologies he gets to talk to scientists about. He also has a sense of humour.
Product Manager: Genomics
James has been with Millennium Science for over 8 years in Product Manager and Territory Manager roles where he has had a particular focus on genomics related products. Prior to working at Millennium Science, he worked for over 7 years at Tasmanian Alkaloids (a Johnson & Johnson company) where he managed a poppy biotechnology program aimed at poppy cultivar improvement. Here, he developed and implemented molecular markers for various commercially relevant poppy traits, managed biotechnology projects aimed at using transgenic technologies for poppy improvement and was co-inventor on patents to modify poppy alkaloid profiles. Prior to this, James was awarded a PhD in plant biotechnology at Queensland University of Technology for his work on the development of plant-based vaccines. James completed his undergraduate studies at Monash University and spent time between this and his doctoral studies working with Agriculture Victoria on various projects studying plant pathogens.
Territory Manager: Victoria & Tasmania
Janice completed her undergraduate degree at Deakin University. She worked in research laboratories at the Baker IDI, the Florey and Monash University where she was working towards her Masters degree. Based on her experience with Applied Biosystems instrumentation, she was head hunted into a sales and product support role with Applied Biosystems. She was actively involved in educating and promoting the gold standard sanger sequencing technologies that Applied Biosystems was well known for. While with Applied Biosystems she co-developed methods for capillary electrophoresis that resulted in a patent. After 13 years with Applied Biosystems, she moved to Beckman Coulter to support their capillary electrophoresis based genomics instrumentation and general sales. The opportunity to work with the range of technologies represented by Millennium Science proved to be too great, and Janice joined Millennium Science 7 years ago as a Victorian Territory Manager.
Product Manager: Protein Science
Territory Manager: Queensland & Northern Territory
Mike has been with Millennium Science for over 9 years as the Queensland Territory Manager and has a Product Manager role with a specific focus on protein science related products and technology. Mike completed his undergraduate studies at the University of California, Davis, then went on to complete his doctoral studies working on 7S-NGF at the University of California, Irvine. He then spent one year at the Ludwig Institute for Cancer research in Melbourne working in the proteomics research group. He then moved to the Baker Heart Research Institute (now Baker Heart IDI) to work on ACE, ACE2, and ECE, important proteins in the regulation of blood pressure. In his final year and a bit at the Baker IDI with Assam El-Osta he put his protein skills to good use investigating the protein complexes involved in chromatin remodeling before joining the team at Millennium Science.
Product Manager: Cell Biology
Hailing from the US, Sharon's career path has been an unorthodox one. Heading back to university as a mature age student Sharon completed her PhD in microbiology at the University of New England. Teaching was a major passion across a variety of disciplines including microbiology, nutrition, molecular biology, biochemistry, physiology and the health sciences. Moving to Melbourne in 2006 saw Sharon enter the commercial world when she joined Millennium Science as the Victorian/Tasmanian Territory Manager. Heading back to uni in 2008 to embark on an MBA during her spare time resulted in a move into Product Management where a new set of challenges awaited. Currently working with new, cutting edge technologies and bringing those to the Australian/New Zealand market is Sharon's primary focus.
