Lara Urban

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