Michael Avis

PossumOriginally from Christchurch, Michael came to Otago in 2019 and completed his undergraduate degree in biomedical sciences in 2021. This year, under the supervision of Dr Alana Alexander, Dr Tim Hore and Dr Donna Bond, Michael will be describing the distribution of mitochondrial protein encoding genotypes within the admixed NZ possum population. He will use this data to identify mis-matched mitogenome and nuclear encoded mitochondrial proteins, and investigate their potential cost to reproductive fitness.
