Dr Kathryn McRae

Affiliation: AgResearch

Role: Ngā Pī Ka Rere (Early Career Pou) Co-Lead

Based at Invermay with AgResearch’s Animal Genomics group, Kathryn is leading our work on securing threatened species and resilient ecosystems by compiling a complete picture of Aotearoa’s natural environment.

She has a background in genetics and zoology, and her current research interests are focused around the genetic basis of animal health.

By helping us fully understand New Zealand’s native and introduced flora, fauna and fungi, this work will ultimately inform the design of a cutting-edge system for biodiversity management.
