Research

Eddy Dowle received her PhD at Massey University (New Zealand) and has research interests in evolution, genomics and development. Her work at Otago University focuses on using genomic techniques (transcriptomics and bi-sulphite sequencing) to understand how parasites manipulate the behaviour of normally terrestrial insect hosts to seek water. Her previous work has focused on using genomic techniques to explore genetic diversity and environmental adaptation in several invertebrate species.
