Dorothy is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Biological Sciences at UTAS. Her current research program focuses on population genetics, phylogeny, evolution, adaptation and biogeography of Eucalyptus. With almost 60 peer-reviewed papers in international scientific journals, including a highly cited Nature paper (Myburg et al. 2014), Dorothy is among the most highly cited experts in Eucalyptus population genetics, phylogeny and evolution.  She inspired me to study eucalypt genetics for my PhD at UTAS.
