Department / University Information


Having completed a Bachelor of Science at Monash University, I moved to The University of Melbourne to complete my BSc-Honours and PhD (2003-2008) with Professors Marilyn Renfree and Geoff Shaw on the endocrine control of growth in developing marsupials. Since then I have undertaken postdoctoral research at the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research in Berlin where I was subsequently awarded an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship to investigate the genetic diversity of the extinct Tasmanian tiger. I have a broad range of research interests including comparative vertebrate reproduction, growth, endocrinology and genomics. I also have a keen interest in studies using ancient DNA.
