Erin is a conservation geneticist and postdoctoral fellow at the Australian National Wildlife Collection at CSIRO. She is working to enable whole genome sequencing and characterisation of gene expression from formalin-preserved museum tissues. Her research is delivering new data streams with which to study how species have historically responded to our changing environment. Erin received her PhD from the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona, USA. Her doctoral work on endangered Sonoran pronghorn enabled wildlife managers to identify appropriate captive individuals for mating and release and was the first study characterising population epigenetics in an endangered species. Erin is a passionate science communicator and educator and was recently selected as a Superstar of STEM by Science and Technology Australia.
