I started my PhD in 2012 under the supervision of A/Prof Nathan Lo and A/Prof Simon Ho. I am investigating the evolution of mound building among Australian termites in the genus Coptotermes, and the maintenance of unusual caste and sex ratios in the species Coptotermes lacteus and Schedorhinotermes intermedius using phylogenetics, next-generation sequencing, and microsatellite analysis.
I completed my undergraduate degree (B.Sc. (Adv) (Hons)) at the University of Sydney in 2011. My Honours research was on the terrestrial isopod species Spherillo grossus and its phylogeography on the Australian east coast, as well as its morphological variability and its relationship with the endosymbiotic bacterium Wolbachia pipientis. In this work I was supervised by Drs Lo and Ho, as well as by Dr George 'Buz' Wilson from the Australian Museum.
