Personal profile


I received my PhD in population genetics from The University of Western Australia in 1997 and held postdoctoral positions at University College London and La Trobe University before returning to UWA to take up a UWA postdoctoral fellowship in 2003. I became a lecturer in the School of Animal Biology in 2006. My research focuses on the genetics of adaptation and the genetic threats of extinction posed to small populations.
