Previous early career researchers
Dr Samuel Andrew
Sam is exploring the use of genomic and trait data to explain the different climates plants are successful in.
Dr Renee Catullo
Renee is an evolutionary biologist interested in using big data to help make information-based decisions for improving our conservation and biosecurity.
Dr Xin-Yi Chua
Xin-Yi is exploring analytical and visualisation methods to help make sense of large genomic datasets, leading to biologically meaningful outcomes.
Dr Xiao Deng
Xiao provides some insights into her path to becoming a research scientist and what is ahead for her in her new position.
Dr Elise Furlan
Dr Furlan's FSP project will investigate if abundance of taxa can be estimated from eDNA data by improving metabarcoding techniques.
Dr Kristen Karsh
Kirsten's current work is testing new methods to provide qualitative and quantitative indicators of microbial nitrogen cycling that could be applied to manage nutrient pollution in estuaries.
Dr Liz Milla
Liz’s current research uses ecological and genomic tools to reveal interactions between plants and their insect pollinators.
Dr Eric Raes
His research interests encompass how insights in the microbial diversity can be used to predict changes in functional ecosystem processes.
