BSc Biology & Biochemistry (U Canterbury, NZ)
MSc Evolutionary Biology (U Canterbury, NZ)
PhD Biology (U Queensland, AU)
I am an evolutionary biologist with a broad range of research interests scaling from molecules, to individuals, to populations, to communities.
My research uses population genetics and evolutionary biology principles to address conservation and biosecurity issues.
Currently, I am postdocing at the University of Melbourne with Ary Hoffmann and Paul Umina. I am investigating the molecular mechanisms of pesticide resistance in key insect and mite pests in the Australian grains industry, with the the goal of developing tools for more effective prediction and management of resistance.
