Dr Curtis is applying molecular tools in combination with ecological studies and historical records, to gain new insights into ecology and archaeology. Her work has involved the analysis of DNA from a range of species (from sawfish to seals) and she has used next generation sequencing technologies to investigate ancient, mummified remains and modern avian species. Dr Curtis is passionate about genomics, technology and their impacts on society, and is particularly interested in privacy issues surrounding genomic data. Her versatile science and science communication skills make Dr Curtis a valuable member of the Centre for Policy Futures’ Science, Technology and Society research program.
