Congratulations to Dr Jemma Geoghegan from the Department of Biological Sciences, who has been recognised for her work in evolutionary biology with a prestigious Young Tall Poppy Science Award.
Dr Geoghegan’s research aims to reveal the drivers of virus diversity, ecology and evolution, including the virus-host interactions that lead to the infection of new host species and result in disease emergence.
“The potential for viruses to spillover to novel host species by cross-species transmission is becoming increasingly apparent. My research focuses on the evolutionary processes that might allow novel pathogens to adapt to new hosts; and the potential barriers to host adaptation,” says Dr Geoghegan.
