Welcome!

5R3A6560 (1)I’m an evolutionary biologist, and Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Moritz Group at the Australian National University. My research seeks to answer evolutionary and ecological questions, using approaches in phylogenomics, phylogeography, population genomics and statistical molecular evolution. I’m fascinated by questions about the evolutionary past of species, and the environments in which they live. I am also especially passionate about the use of museum collections as a resource for understanding past genetic diversity, population decline and extinction, and how this knowledge can be used to inform conservation management.

My work focuses on evolutionary biology and genomics across the spectacular diversity of Australian mammals and reptiles. This has especially included native rodents, and more recently marsupials and geckos. More details on current research projects can be found here.

I’m available to supervise Honours, Masters or PhD students – student projects are listed here. I also welcome students who have their own project ideas. Please get in touch.
