Conservation Genomics Coordinator in the Research Centre for Ecosystem Resilience

Research Interests

Australian rainforests, biogeography, evolution & ecology, assembly, species diversity, phylogenetics, Next Generation Sequencing, landscape-level population genetics. 

Current Projects

  • Study how biogeographic and ecological processes influence Australian rainforest species distributions and assembly
  • Investigate the population dynamics of Australian rainforests in the AWT using NGS
  • Explore population dynamics of Australian rainforests across NSW using Genotyping by sequencing data (part of the Restore and Renew (R&R) project)
  • Study the impact of dispersal on the distribution and assembly of Australian rainforest trees
