Georgia’s PhD project, Monitoring blue biodiversity: examining diversity patterns in oceanic environments using environmental DNA, involves collaborations between Curtin University, the Knysna Basin Project, the Western Australian Museum and the Australian Antarctic Division. The project aims to use environmental DNA to determine patterns in marine biodiversity in areas that are severely underrepresented in the literature and provide innovative methods of monitoring threatened species. Georgia is experienced in using metabarcoding techniques, she was awarded a summer scholarship in 2018 in partnership with Chevron and Curtin University that developed pre-operational fish baseline data for several ports in eastern Europe using eDNA metabarcoding methodologies. She is also proficient with bioinformatic workflows having completed an internship at the Pawsey Supercomputing Centre in 2019.
