  • 2010-2014: Postdoctoral Fellowship (Population Genomics), Max Planck Institute for Developmental Biology, Tübingen, Germany; Project: Population genomics and trait evolution in the nematode, Pristionchus pacificus
  • 2006-2009: PhD (Molecular Biosciences), Massey University/Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution, Palmerston North, New Zealand; Thesis title: Polar evolution: molecular genetic and physiological parameters of Antarctic arthropod populations
  • 2003-2005: MSc (Genetics); first class honours, Waikato University, Hamilton, New Zealand; Thesis title: Genetic diversity and phylogeography of New Zealand and Antarctic arthropods
  • 2000-2002: BSc (Biology), Waikato University, Hamilton, New Zealand
