She has served as an executive member of the Intellectual Property Society of Australia and New Zealand (IPSANZ) for a number of years and currently remains a member of the Intellectual Property Committee of the Law Council of Australia. Leanne is currently looking at open access issues in relation to agricultural research and the legal issues arising from the collection, aggregation and dissemination of on-farm data.
Leanne is currently a Researcher on the project 'Accelerating Precision Agriculture to Decision Agriculture'. The project is a partnership between all 15 of Australia's Rural Research and Development Corporations (RDCs), led by CRDC, and includes other research partners such as Data to Decisions CRC, CSIRO, the University of New England and the University of the Sunshine Coast. The collaborative project will design a solution for the use of big data in agriculture increasing the profitability of producers, providing clarity about data ownership and access rights, and improving farming strategies. This project is supported by funding from the Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources as part of its Rural R&D for Profit programme.
