Christina N. Zdenek

Lab Manager/Post-doc at the Venom Evolution Lab, The University of Queensland

I am a biologist and toxinologist at the University of Queensland, where I work full-time as the Lab Manager and a Post-doctoral Research Fellow in the Venom Evolution Lab. My current full-time work explores the systematic effects of animal venoms (mostly snakes) and therapeutic options to treat snakebite. I also study snake behaviour so that we can better understand this often mal-aligned taxon. The primary purpose of my science communication work is to promote wildlife and reduce the human-snake conflict. Part-time work of mine involves running the #PalmCockatooProject, #CockyCognition Project, and The #DeathAdderProject. My ultimate purpose is to use science to promote a better world, for humans and for wildlife.
