Profile:

I am completing my PhD at the Australian Centre for Wildlife Genomics and the University of Sydney, investigating the genetics of the critically-endangered orange-bellied parrot. My project will include sequencing the orange-bellied parrot genome and undertaking population genetic as well as immunogenetic analyses to contribute to the effective conservation management of this species. My background is in molecular biology, specifically biochemistry and genetics, and my research interests include conservation and population genetics, genomics, and molecular ecology, as well as conservation and captive management of threatened species.
