I currently hold a duel position as a postdoc within the Environment Institute and as the project coordinator for DivSeek International Regional Hub for Australasia.

My research is focused mainly on integrating genomics into restoration and conservation. I am working on a number of projects which analyse the variation of genetic diversity within plant species vulnerable to climate change. I use this information to directly inform practitioners where to collect their seed for conservation and revegetation projects.

I've had a varied career, starting out in practical conservation work in Scotland. I then travelled and worked as a research assistant for various groups around the world, receiving my PhD from the University of Adelaide in January 2022. Overall, I find my self most drawn to the application of science into management and practice, working directly with practitioners to close the gap between research and on-ground actions.
