My research uses genetic and epigenetic data to examine population and evolutionary processes. Specifically, my research group investigates the molecular mechanisms underlying rapid evolution often seen in invasive populations and provides information used to improve the management of invasive and conserved species.

Our invasive species research is focused on cane toads and starlings but we also have projects on a variety of species in the context of conservation. I am a member of the starling genome consortium and the cane toad genome consortium.

I am a Scientia Associate Professor in the School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences and a member of the Evolution & Ecology Research Centre at UNSW. I am also the Vice-President of the Genetics Society of Australasia.
