Victoria Twort – new postdoc

Victoria’s interests are in applying genomic techniques to organisms in order to
better understand evolutionary relationships and the patterns and processes of
molecular evolution and diversification both at intra- and inter-specific
levels. Victoria completed her PhD at The University of Auckland, New Zealand
with Thomas Buckley and Richard Newcomb. For her thesis, she used genomics
techniques to investigation various evolutionary aspects of weta biology. In
particular, she looked at molecular evolutionary patterns associated with alpine
adaptation, de novo assembly of a giant weta genome and undertook a
conservation genetic analysis of three threatened species. Victoria has now
started working as a postdoc with Niklas Wahlberg on Lepidoptera phylogenomics.
