After almost six years as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow within the Gemmell group, Dr Erica Todd has left us to take up a new position as Lecturer in Marine Genomics at Deakin University in Geelong, Australia.
She remains a collaborator of the Gemmell Lab with her expertise in appliying transcriptome sequencing and comparative genomic approaches to explore female to male sex reversal in fish, as her skills are unvaluable to the molecular basis of sex reversal project in our group.
