Maddy is a maritime archaeologist with a career spanning over a decade working in Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria and now Queensland. Her research interests revolve around shipwrecks and underwater archaeology in Australasia. She has a passion for wooden ship construction and site formation processes - particularly on reeef environments. Maddy's PhD research explored underwater 3D photogrammetry of shipwreck sites, particularly analysing the implication of theoretical approaches to archaeological visualisation and digital realism, which continues to be a focus of her studies.

Maddy's current position is a joint role with JCU and the Queensland Museum, she manages the maritime archaeological collection housed in Townsville at the Museum of Tropical Queensland. Forthcoming research projects will involve collections and analysis of shipwreck material.

In addition, Maddy is a commercial diver and coxswain with a range of experience in maritime heritage management and fieldwork across Australia and the world.
