Megan first came to AbacusBio as a summer intern after completing a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Molecular Biology at the University of Otago in 2017.
Having come from a sheep and beef farm in Tapanui, she develops a strong passion for agriculture and is fascinated by the huge role that genetics plays in solving problems faced by farmers and food producers.
Megan's first-hand experience in farming, coupled with the molecular biology and genetics background of her degree, put her in an excellent position to work at AbacusBio.
Her focus within AbacusBio is:
- Agricultural systems and technology
- On-farm applied research
- Technology adoption and implementation
- Facilitation and project management
