Postdoctoral Research Scientist, James Cook University Townsville,
Deb is passionate about equality and diversity in the world and especially in science. Her work involves researching conservation strategies for lesser-loved wildlife like reptiles and frogs. Frogs are particularly pertinent to conservation because 40% of species are threatened with extinction. Deb’s research has focused on understanding a parasitic fungus that has caused the decline of frogs on multiple continents. She collaborates widely with students and scientists from around the world and she hopes to create opportunities to increase capacity for underrepresented groups in science through partnering with industries that can benefit from diversity.
