I am a research associate in Prof. Michelle Waycott research group. I am leading research into population genetics and evolution of plants, and specialised seagrasses. I utilise molecular genetic techniques –traditional and NGS– to establish the relationship among species, populations and genetic individuals. In the recent years we have been developing Hybrid Capture methods (OzBaits) to assess phylogenetic and phylogeographic relationships among plants using dozens of nuclear and plastid loci. We have also been testing if this targeted approach can be used for environmental (eDNA) or ancient (aDNA) DNA.
