Lab Manager & Research Assistant
I completed a BSc (Hons) in 1999 and my PhD in 2005 at UQ. My current research is focused on gastrointestinal regulation during aestivation in the Green–striped burrowing frogs and the phenotypic plasticity of crocodile salt glands. The aestivating frog work forms part of Prof. Franklin’s larger Aestivating Frog Project and is a continuation of my PhD project. The salt gland work follows on from a large ARC Grant to Craig, the results of which we are currently in the process of writing up for publication. More information on these specific projects can be found by following the Research link. I am also responsible for managing the day-to-day running of the Franklin Lab and assisting students and other lab members.
