Prof Carolyn Hogg
The University of Sydney
Dr Carolyn Hogg has been working on the conservation of threatened species for over twenty-five years both in Australia and overseas. Carolyn is currently the Senior Research Manager for the Australasian Wildlife Genomics Group at the University of Sydney. Carolyn has been working with the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program for the past ten years; in addition to other species such as orange-bellied parrots, koalas, bilbies and woylies.
Carolyn is currently the Science Lead for the Threatened Species Initiative, generating genomic resources for some of Australia’s most threatened species. Working closely with both her academic and conservation management partners Carolyn’s vision is to create a conservation legacy for Australia by changing the way we integrate science, management and policy; to proactively promote species’ resilience in the face of a changing world. Carolyn and the team are achieving this by developing better tools and technologies to integrate molecular genetics into real-time conservation management decisions.
