Personal profile


Danica Goggin completed her undergraduate and PhD studies at UWA, and then worked at the WA Department of Agriculture as a specialist consultant - enzymologist for a year before returning to UWA as a postdoctoral researcher. She is currently a research associate in the Australian Herbicide Resistance Initiative in the School of Agriculture and Environment.


Danica's main field of research is plant biochemistry. In her time at UWA, she has worked on anoxia tolerance in wheat, identification of allergens in lupin seeds, characterisation of seed dormancy and germination in annual ryegrass, and the biochemical and physiological mechanisms of herbicide resistance in agricultural weeds.
