Teaching/ Technical Help in Teaching: (courses and include details)

I have been the technical staff working with the molecular biology related courses and research students whose projects are related to this area of biology. In the undergraduate unit, this will be BI205 Genetics and Evolution. Other units are postgraduate units like BI436 Biotechnology

I do assist in other relevant units like BI308   Environmental Microbiology which have a close molecular component.

Current Research Interests: (if applicable)

I am currently working on Fiji native birds particularly honeyeaters and using bioinformatics of evolutionary biology to trace their origins to help with understanding their biodiversity and the conservation measures needed to protect these vulnerable birds.
