Hello Galaxy Community,


We are excited to announce the first of our three keynote speakers who will be joining us at the 2023 Galaxy Community Conference (GCC2023) in Brisbane, Australia!


Our first phenomenal speaker is the Senior Research Manager for the Australasian Wildlife Genomics Group and uses Galaxy to address biodiversity challenges and promote species’ resilience in Australia. See more about the fantastic Dr. Carolyn Hogg below!


Dr. Carolyn Hogg

Senior Research Manager

University of Sydney


“I have been working on the conservation of threatened species for over 25 years, both in Australia and overseas. I am currently the Senior Research Manager for the Australasian Wildlife Genomics Group in the Faculty of Science. I have been working with the Save the Tasmanian Devil Program for the past 10 years, in addition to other species such as orange-bellied parrots, koalas, bilbies, and woylies. Working closely with both my academic and conservation management partners, my vision is to create a conservation legacy for Australia by changing the way we integrate science, management, and policy to proactively promote species’ resilience in the face of a changing world. We are achieving this by developing better tools and technologies to integrate molecular genetics into real-time conservation management decisions.


We are thrilled to showcase Dr. Hogg and her research at GCC2023!
Stay tuned for more information on this year’s keynote speakers!
