Angela graduated with a BSc (Hons) from the University of Melbourne, co-majoring in Marine Biology and Environmental Science. She completed a PhD on parental effects in broadcast-spawning marine invertebrates at the University of Queensland with Prof Dustin Marshall, during which time her interests shifted from Marine Science to Evolutionary Ecology. After her PhD, she moved to Sydney to work with Prof Russell Bonduriansky at UNSW, investigating mechanisms of non-genetic inheritance in the neriid fly, and was subsequently awarded an ARC DECRA Fellowship 'More than meets the egg: environmental effects on sperm quality, sperm competitive success, and offspring fitness.' In 2016, Angela was awarded a Postdoctoral Fellowship from The University of Sydney, funded by a bequest from the Mabs Melville Trust to the Faculty of Veterinary Science. In 2019, Angela joined the GECKO (Gametic Epigenetics Consortium against Obesity) Consortium, to help translate knowledge gained through evolutionary studies to develop pre-conception guidelines for male fertility.
