Alicia Grealy

Research Projects Officer, CSIRO

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science with Honours from the University of Queensland (Qld, Australia) in 2011, and gained a doctorate from the Curtin University (WA, Australia) in 2017. I undertook a post-doctoral position at the Australian National University (ACT, Australia) in 2018-2019, and joined the National Research Collections Australia at CSIRO in 2020. My interests include using ancient and historical DNA to study evolution, and improving molecular methods to recover DNA from fossils and museum specimens.
