Academic background

I commenced as Conservation Geneticist at Kings Park and Botanic Garden in November 1998. Prior to that, I spent 3 years as an ARC funded post-doctoral fellow in the School of Botany and Zoology, ANU, Canberra. There, I developed and applied new molecular markers (AFLP) for the novel assessment of paternity in natural populations of Persoonia mollis (Proteaceae). I used these markers to address the role of post-pollination sexual selection in male reproductive success, and to characterise in more detail than previously possible realised pollen dispersal. Before that, I taught botany at the University of Sydney for 2 years, which followed on from graduating with my PhD from the University of Wollongong in 1994. There, under the supervision of Prof Rob Whelan, Prof David Ayre and Dr Peter Weston, I undertook an ecological genetic study of evolutionary pattern and process in the complex species Persoonia mollis. Between graduating with first class Honours from the University of Sydney in 1987, and commencing my PhD in 1990, I worked with Drs Barbara Briggs and Lawrie Johnson on a taxonomic revision of the Restionaceae at the National Herbarium, Royal Botanic Gardens, Sydney.

At Kings Park and Botanic Garden, I head up the Conservation Genetics team, and we are largely focussed on achieving practical conservation and ecological restoration outcomes from molecular research. My research interests continue to be in evolutionary processes such as mating, pollen dispersal and long-distance dispersal of seed, as well as the assessment of spatial genetic structure and variation within species, and largely in a conservation and/or ecological restoration context. This extends to the assessment of clonality, and the assessment of genetic erosion, especially as it relates to threatened species recovery, and the quantification of impacts on rare plant species, especially from mining, on population genetic variation and process. A new focus is on the genetic assessment of the functionality of restored populations, through an assessment of mating and delivery of pollinator services. A key application of research on spatial genetic structure is the contribution that it can make to the delineation of local provenance seed collection zones for ecological restoration, and much of my research is focused around the practical contribution that genetics can make towards best-practise guidelines for seed sourcing for restoration. I have also applied genetic tools such as DNA fingerprinting and DNA sequencing for more effective outcomes in native plant breeding programs.
