Educational background:

Evelyn is a postdoctoral researcher in the CAGT group with research skills in population genomics, bioinformatics, quantitative genetics and biostatistics. She is particularly interested in understanding how population history events and selective breeding practices influence genomic changes in horses. Evelyn was awarded her PhD at the University of Sydney in 2020. Her PhD research focussed on understanding the effects of selective breeding on performance and genetic load in Thoroughbred racehorses.
