20 Rising Stars

I was recently profiled in the University of New South Wales’ “20 Rising Stars” series.

The piece included a short article and a great photograph of me taken by Quentin Jones. You can see the piece in full here.

Undoing Forever – CBC Ideas

Extinction is supposed to be forever. But in labs around the world, scientists — using the latest biotechnology — are trying to bring extinct animals back to life. From passenger pigeons to woolly mammoths, Britt Wray delves into the science, the ethics, and the implications of de-extinction for all animals, including us humans.

I participated in this fascinating radio documentary on de-extinction and the resurrection of extinct species. The program includes a range of scientists and a little bit of historical and philosophical input. It is an engaging listen. (I appear around the 43 minute mark.)
