I am a medical researcher developing new treatments against antibiotic-resistant superbugs at The University of Adelaide. Since 2015, I have been the city-coordinator in Adelaide, which is an exciting role and I am thrilled to engage with peers and the public, demystifying science at a pub near you.
I use DNA extracted from long-dead people and animals as a time machine to reconstruct the genetic history of humans and other large mammals. I have an accent in all languages I speak, I significantly increase the average age of my soccer team, and I feel better on the road than on the couch.
I am a PhD candidate at the University of Adelaide studying wombats. I love all things genetics and conservation and am always looking to meet new people to discuss these topics. I enjoy brining science and conservation to new audiences, and having a pint involved doesn't hurt either.
