Post-doctoral Research Fellow, Venom Evolution Lab, The University of Queensland

I am a biologist and toxinologist at the University of Queensland, where I work as a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in the Venom Evolution Lab. My current work explores the systematic effects of animal venoms (mostly snakes) and therapeutic options to treat snakebite. I also study Palm Cockatoos, snake ecology, and snake behaviour so that we can better understand this often maligned taxon and reduce the human-snake conflict. My ultimate purpose is to use science and science communication to promote a better world, for humans and for wildlife.
