CAREER HISTORY: Bethany has mainly had an academic career. She spent her undergraduate years in Australia at the University of Queensland and then New South Wales for her honours work. During this time she worked as a research assistant for a number of projects run within physics departments. She developed a taste for aerodynamics when working on a project exploring increasing thrust in props.

Her Father convinced her to move to the UK where he lives to complete her PhD. She did this at the University of Southhampton examining Flight Inflow Dynamics in V/STOL Aircraft. Her work caught the attention of a Professor Barlow who was in the beginnings of being recruited in the Stargate Program as a UK representative.

Barlow convinced Bethany to join despite her anxiety. Since then, she has worked on a project within the Stargate Program examining aerial combat abilities with Puddle Jumpers. Now, she works with off world teams discovering new ancient technology.
SPECIALTIES: Bethany is a physicist specialising in aerodynamics and space flight. She has become well educated in 'Ancient' flight technology and is able to interface with flight systems in most ancient ships.

Bethany is not heavily trained in weapons and has an aversion to using them. However, she can use them and has been known to out on missions.

Recently, Bethany has become heavily involved in off world teams seeking out new technology and was earmarked for the 'Atlantis' project. However certain discrepancies in her personal life and some questions over her allegiance to the Stargate program has meant she has been demoted to remaining on Earth.
