Karin has a background in politics, public policy, business and academia. She obtained degrees in archaeology from Sydney University, and over the last 30 years has worked on archaeological excavations in Australia, Egypt and the Levant. From 1996 to 2005, Karin was Assistant Curator of the Nicholson Museum at Sydney University and is widely published in scholarly and popular literature on topics as wide-ranging as mummies, Egyptian material culture, and the funerary archaeology of Saqqara, in addition to her core area of expertise.
In other roles, Karin has worked with a variety of corporate and church organisations, including over six years as a company Chief Executive Officer. In the early 1990s, Karin served as a Senator in the Parliament of Australia, at the time the youngest woman to do so. All these roles involved extensive mentoring of women at different stages of their careers.
