Research

Amy completed her PhD with Dr Caroline Beck, University of Otago (2013). This work provided some of the first evidence that epigenetic mechanisms distinguish whole structure regeneration from normal embryonic development. From 2014–2016 Amy worked in the Department of Medicine, University of Otago, as an Assistant Research Fellow and Departmental Lab Manager. In 2016 Amy joined the Bicknell lab as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow to develop CRISPR in frogs as a model for DNA replication associated disorders.

Aside from research Amy is the young member representative of the Otago branch of the New Zealand Federation of Graduate Women (NZFGW).
