Personal profile


I am a molecular biologist with a strong research interest in exploring the processes that accompany evolutionary change. My research has linked environmental and population demographic processes to genetic changes occurring on sex chromosomes in a reptile. Currently, my interests lie in describing the genetic processes accompanying 'boom bust' population dynamics in desert rodents. My research combines long-term life history data with Next Generation Sequencing and individual-based simulations to describe the molecular processes that occur during species evolution and favour population persistence. I am passionate about understanding population responses to anthropogenic climate change.
