I am a postdoctoral researcher specialising in molecular biology, genomics and genetics at the University of New South Wales.
My research background is on the conservation and population genetics of dingoes. Other research interests include the use of genetic/genomics tools to inform conservation management, the evolution of canids, domestication as a genetic process and the utilisation of genetics/genomics for invasive species management.
