Senior Manager Genetic Resources Museums Victoria
Melbourne, Australia, Australian
Joanna is passionate about the natural world and is happiest wandering in the Australian bush, where she grew up. She is currently the Manager of Genetic Resources at Melbourne Museum, facilitating conservation and evolutionary genetic research, and managing the museum’s wildlife DNA collection. Joanna has loved the complementary nature of hands-in-the-dirt field research in biodiversity with genomic analyses. Her first love is reptiles, and she is in awe of their diversity and ingenuity. When not at work she loves gardening, the brilliant company of her teenagers, practicing aikido and travelling with her partner.
