My work with Hihi began in June 2015 when I started a PhD on Hihi genomics in the University of Auckland. The project aims to investigate the genomic variation in the Hihi population and to map specific genomic variants to morphological and reproductive features. Prior to my arrival in New Zealand, I completed a masters in bioinformatics in 2012 looking at the evolution of genes involved in lung tissue development and I subsequently spent a few years working on a wide variety of bioinformatics projects and delivering workshops in the University of Leicester.
