Scientific Officer

As a scientific officer at ReCER, my role is to set up, manage and support a range of conservation genomic projects on threatened species to provide practical applied outcomes that are relevant to their management needs. More on these projects can be found here.

I am particularly interested in simple, innovative genomic approaches that can improve our understanding of biodiversity and at the same time address conservation questions with directly applicable management actions. 

An update-to-date list of my publications is on Google Scholar.

Research interests

  • Conservation genomics: Study genetic diversity patterns in threatened species and processes that cause them.
  • Rainforest evolutionary ecology: Study patterns and processes that explain the distribution of Australian rainforest tree species.
