Full DescriptionI completed my PhD at Deakin University in 2006 under the supervision of Professor Chris Austin, followed by 6 years of employment as a postdoctoral research fellow with The University of Melbourne. Here I worked with Professor Ary Hoffmann’s CESAR group with my position having a primary focus on enhancing biological and ecological knowledge of key invertebrates pests in the Australian grains industry. I maintain a keen interest and involvement in the agricultural sciences, however my research interests are broad and involve the ecological genetics of Australian wildlife from terrestrial, freshwater and marine ecosystems. Specifically, my research focuses on the application of genetic and genomic tools for improving the management of threatened, commercially important, and pest species. I have a particularly keen interest in the evolution and conservation of rare, threatened, and ecologically important species (i.e. foundation and keystone), where I routinely draw on genetic and genomic methods to assess evolutionary trajectories and help inform conservation management. I joined Deakin University in 2015 with my research position having a strong marine focus with several projects related to conservation and seascape genomics.
