Conservation Genomics

Lara Urban

I am an Independent Humboldt Research Fellow who studies how genomics research can benefit nature conservation and be incorporated into the management of critically endangered species. My current work focuses on the New Zealand bird species takahē and kākāpō, and on the application of environmental DNA research for biodiversity monitoring.
