I am 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 am fascinated by questions and approaches which attempt to reconstruct 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 biodiversity loss.
My work largely focuses on evolutionary biology and genomics across the spectacular diversity of Australian mammals and reptiles. This has especially included native rodents, and more recently geckos. More details of my current research projects can be found here.
