I'm a biologist interested in genetics, ecology, evolution, conservation and wildlife management, especially of terrestrial vertebrates. My current role is project coordinator for the Oz Mammals Genomics Initiative, based at the Australian National University. I'm also an adjunct at the Institute for Applied Ecology, where I was a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Conservation and Population Genetics 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.
