My research interest focuses on three areas: Population and conservation genetics of plants, and genomics of eucalypts.
This research involves studying the natural history and genome structures of plants species, especially forest trees and eucalypts from south-eastern Australia. It involves using molecular tools to help the conservation of endangered as well as widespread plant species and understand their evolution including phylogeny and phylogeography. We also use molecular tools to discover the QTL, genes and alleles that control natural genetic variation for important traits in Eucalyptus including traits that could help the genetic improvement of Eucalyptus plantations in Australia.
