Research interests

Reproductive and developmental biology

My research investigates the role of sex steroid hormones (estrogen, progesterone and androgen) in the development of reproductive organs, and how these hormones are disrupted by chemicals in our everyday environment. I am also part of a team developing genetic engineering techniques as a conservation tool for Australian marsupials.
