The SciComm of the thylacine genome paper broke down in several ways and ultimately led to the dispersal of inaccurate and misleading information. To help clear up the SciComm mess, I spoke to an author on the paper, evolutionary biologist Dr Kieren Mitchell, and Dr Lauren White, a wildlife geneticist and expert in population genetics of Tassie tigers.Read More

A long time in the making but it's finally here! The purpose of this website is combine threads of my life into a nice cohesive bundle, and hopefully a somewhat accurate representation of me! It's an attempt to bring together parts of my life that I once considered to be divergent (comedy, art, biology), but it turns out they have a commonality: me!
So look forward to hearing about my research, upcoming comedy gigs, bizarre biology facts, and my drawings (gallery coming soon!)
