I am a PhD student at the Australian National University (Division of Ecology and Evolution) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Australian National Insect Collection). I am jointly supervised by Dr Adam Ślipiński (CSIRO) and Professor Dave Rowell (ANU).
My current research is on the systematics and phylogeny of the longhorn beetle genus Rhytiphora, using museum specimens to investigate the phylogenetic relationships, morphology and biogeography of 200 Australian species. The ANU College of Science published an article about my research here.
I completed my Bachelor of Philosophy – Science (Hons) at ANU. My Honours project and subsequent research assistant work was on the phylogenetic and phenotypic diversity of Australian Gehyra geckos (supervised by Professor Craig Moritz and Dr Paul Oliver).
