I have worked on hihi since 2005 when I started my PhD at Imperial College London. I have continued using hihi as a model system for my post-doctoral and fellowship positions at the Institute of Zoology in London. My research interests focus on the ecology, evolution and conservation of reintroduced species, particularly, the evolutionary and genetic consequences of reintroduction of wild bird populations. I routinely use pedigrees (quantitative genetics) and molecular tools to understand the role of inbreeding, genetic diversity loss and a species life-history traits on their vulnerability to extinction.
