I encourage enquiries from students and postdocs who are interested in joining my research group. I can offer research opportunities in a range of subject areas, including:

  • Human prehistory and evolution (particularly in the Indo-Pacific region)
  • Cultural evolution and co-evolutionary systems
  • Population genetics
  • Demographic modeling and computer simulation
  • Inferential statistics (Bayesian and Maximum Likelihood)
  • Genomics and transcriptomics
  • Fungal comparative genetics and evolution
  • Next generation sequencing technologies

Positions are available for local and international applicants. Enthusiastic undergraduate students are welcome to join my research program. Research training can either be managed via informal internships, or as part of Massey University paper 247.300 (Research in BioSciences).

Massey University offers a range of undergraduate and postgraduate scholarships, including dedicated funding for PhD research. Please contact me if you would like to discuss these opportunities.
