Tammy Steeves

Principal Investigator

 

Tammy is an Associate Professor of Conservation Genomics at Te Whare Wānanga o Waitaha/University of Canterbury where she co-leads the Conservation, Systematics and Evolution Research Team (ConSERT). Tammy’s research interests focus on the ecological and evolutionary processes that contribute to the formation and maintenance of species boundaries, and the application of this knowledge to enhance the recovery of species at risk. In partnership with mana whenua and in collaboration with conservation practitioners, her team uses genomic and non-genomic data to co-develop conservation genetic management strategies for some of Aotearoa New Zealand’s rarest taonga species. More about Tammy.
