Elise Ireland

Research Assistant


I joined the Chown Lab in 2017 after completing a Bachelor of Biological Sciences at La Trobe University, majoring in Zoology. I am particularly interested in biodiversity conservation and the challenges it faces from changing climates and other human impacts. While studying, I also volunteered for two years at Melbourne Museum in the Vertebrates Collection. Currently my role in the Chown lab involves helping Jessica Hoskins maintain the Collombola.
