I am an Endeavour Postdoctoral Fellow at East Carolina University, exploring the genomics of domestication and the evolution of post-zygotic incompatibilities in Gouldian finches.
I completed my PhD in 2017 at Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia. My project was supervised by Simon Griffith and Lee Ann Rollins (Deakin University) on the extent of genetic incompatibility between head-colour morphs of wild Gouldian Finches.
I studied my undergraduate degree in at the Australian National University (ANU) in Canberra, Australia. I started out with the delusion of being an Archaeologist with an Arts/Science degree, but that didn't last long! I soon switched to a full Bachelor of Science. I continued on to do an Honours dissertation with the Scott Keogh on the phylogenetics of a group of Australian burrowing snakes.
I fancy myself a bit of an outdoor-adventurer/rock-climber/field-naturalist/artist/photographer/nerd.
