I am ARC DECRA Fellow molecular microbiologist with broad interests in veterinary microbiology, molecular epidemiology and phylogenomics, zoonoses and diagnostics. My research is focused on chlamydial infections in animals, with  special interest in zoonoses. I aim to understand dynamics of (where, when, what/who and how) chlamydial infection spill-over occurs between different hosts. My lab is a part of USC Chlamydia group, from University of the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

I am also languages enthusiast. 

Martina identifies as culturally and linguistically diverse.
