Dr. Stephanie Galla

Researcher, University of Canterbury

I am interested in interdisciplinary conservation efforts for threatened species, and in particular, how genomic technologies can be incorporated into conservation management strategies. I recently finished my PhD dissertation evaluating techniques for estimating relatedness (e.g., pedigree, genetic, and genomic-based approaches) in the critically-endangered kakī/black stilt (Himantopus novaezelandiae) and kākāriki karaka/orange-fronted parakeet (Cyanoramphus malherbi). Through continued work in conservation genomics, I hope to better inform management plans for threatened species worldwide.

In addition to conservation science, I enjoy illustrating and am a cofounder of the Kindness in Science collective in Aotearoa New Zealand. Check out this site to learn more!
