She was a Series Editor of CABI (UK) Agricultural Biotechnology Series (25 monographs published in the series) and Chair of the Doyle Foundation, a Scottish based charity that promotes the role of science and technology in development, especially in Africa. Gabrielle's biosafety-related achievements include co authoring the World Bank Biosafety Guidelines: "Enabling the Safe Use of Biotechnology"; authoring the International Council of Science (ICSU) meta analysis on "New genetics, food and agriculture: scientific discoveries-societal dilemmas"; and authoring a World Bank/CGIAR Publication on "Agricultural Biotechnology and the Poor". She focuses her work in Australia, Kenya, Uganda, Indonesia, Vietnam, the South Pacific, and India. What excites Gabrielle most about biosafety is that it provides the essential building block for the safe applications of new technologies that can reduce poverty and ensure food security for millions of people in the developing world.
