I completed my PhD in late 2009, working on phylogeography and ecophysiology of Antarctic invertebrates (springtails and mites) at Massey University (New Zealand). I then completed a ~4-year post-doc at the Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology (Department for Evolutionary Biology) in Tuebingen, Germany. This post-doc focused on population genomics of a nematode, Pristionchus pacificus from La Reunion Island, and also branched out into ecological perspectives (e.g., natural variaition in several traits, including cold tolerance, chemo-attraction, rates of male production). In mid-2014, I moved to Canberra to work at CSIRO in conjunction with the University of Melbourne, where I focused on comparative genomics of the moth genus, Helicoverpa. While based at CSIRO, I developed a DECRA proposal focused on the population genomics of rapid evolution in insecticide resistance in Helicoverpa armigera. I began working on this project in earnest in February 2016, taking up a DECRA fellowship here at ANU.
