My passion lies in research which contributes to our understanding of the evolutionary interactions between organism and ecology - in particular, the evolution of the venom and venom systems of reptiles.
I am a PhD student in the Venom Evolution Lab at the University of Queensland where I investigate the functional and molecular evolution of viper (Viperinae) venom. My research incorporates evolutionary biology with clinical toxinology. I aim to illuminate the evolutionary processes shaping viper venom and provide insight into the implications this can have for snakebite therapeutics.
