About

Agnes’s research focuses on the use of cutting-edge and traditional molecular approaches for the conservation and protection of Australia’s unique aquatic fauna. She currently works with environmental DNA (eDNA) to address a broad range of biosecurity and ecological conservation applications. In particular, Agnes is developing innovative eDNA methods for detecting pest species (e.g. tilapia) and species of conservation concern (sawfish) across Australia.
