Post Doctoral Researcher, La Trobe University

Amy completed her BSC (Hons) majoring in zoology and ecology in Brisbane at the University of Queensland, Australia. Her PhD through the University of Tasmania led her to investigate offspring sex ratios in captive and wild animals, and allowed her to experience her zoological dream of working in Africa. Amy is now a post-doctoral research fellow for La Trobe University in Melbourne, where she is developing new methods of sperm analysis for marsupials, and further investigating the effects of captivity and stress on reproduction. Amy’s dream is to improve outputs of captive breeding for reintroduction of endangered animals.
