Honorary Research Fellow, The University of Queensland

Dr Curtis is an Honorary Research Fellow at the University of Queensland, and an Adjunct Research Fellow at Griffith University. She is a molecular biologist, interested in applying molecular tools (usually DNA sequencing), in combination with ecological studies and historical records, to gain new insights into ecology and archaeology.

For the past few years, Caitlin has been using second generation DNA sequencing to look at evolution in ancient, mummified remains and modern avian species. She is also interested in forensics and conservation biology.
