I'm a biologist interested in genetics, ecology, evolution, conservation and wildlife management. I work at the Australian National University as project coordinator for the Oz Mammal Genomes initiative. I'm also an adjunct at the Institute for Applied Ecology, where I was a postdoctoral research fellow from 2008-2016. I completed my PhD on tammar wallaby genetics at the University of Canberra in 2008, and my Bachelor of Science (Honours) in Zoology and Genetics at the University of Sheffield in 1999.
