Ashley.Edwards@utas.edu.au

At Macquarie University Dr Edwards studied moulting hormone gene expression in aphids, and pheromone production in the Australian lungfish. Her PhD at UTAS was on steroid control of reproductive physiology and behaviour in blue tongue lizards. She then completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Uppsala, Sweden, before returning to UTAS to teach and continue physiological study of reptiles.

Biography

Ashley gained her PhD at UTAS studying the reproductive physiology of blue tonged lizards and continues to maintain an interest vertebrate physiology. She focus more recently is in the scholarship of Learning and teaching research, and she has received numerous teaching Merit Certificates, a UTAS teaching Excellence award, a Vice Chancellors citation and a National Teaching citation from the ALTC. Her teaching research ranges from flexible assessment to the ethical use of animals in teaching to Inquiry Oriented Learning, and is always focused on enhancing the student experience.

Expertise

Dr Edwards is a comparative endocrinologist in the School of Biological Sciences, University of Tasmania. Her main interest is in the overlap between ecology and physiology, and the regulatory mechanisms animals employ to successfully negotiate life history characteristic such as reproductive frequency and assessing body condition for reproduction. Ashley works mainly on the production, regulation and control of reproductive physiology and behaviours, focusing on the reproductive steroids (testosterone, estradiol and progesterone) and the hypothalmic-pituitary-gonadal (HPG) axis in vertebrates, especially reptiles. She is currently investigating the role of the HPG axis in the onset and regulation of sexual maturity in juvenile blue-tongued lizards, and the age-related differences in morphological versus physiological indicators sexual maturity. She has extended these interests to include the role of thyroxine and other metabolic hormones in breeding decisions by viviparous reptiles.

Most recently Ashley is undertaking primarily Scholarship of Learning and Teaching research exploring such areas as flexible assessment, inquiry oriented learning and engagement and other aspects of the student perspective on learning.

Collaboration

Ashley is currently collaborating with teaching colleagues from Griffith, Monash, Western Sydney, ANU and  La Trobe universities on academic benchmarking activities. Ashley also regularly collaborates with several colleagues from James cook university Townsville and the CSIRO in Hobart on science based research.
