Dr Sophia Escobar Correas is a PostDoctoral Research Fellow at the School of Science and visiting scientist in the CSIRO Agriculture & Food Business Unit.
Sophia received her PhD in Biological Science in the Argentinian National University of Cuyo in 2020.
During her PhD she worked studying the digestive system of a non-model species, the invasive apple snail Pomacea canaliculata, to increase the understanding of the animal’s biology and potentially generate new opportunities to eradicate and/or control this agricultural pest. As part of her studies, Sophia engaged in a visiting fellowship at CSIRO Agriculture & Food with Prof. Dr Michelle Colgrave as her supervisor (2017-2018). During this fellowship she developed her skills and experience in mass spectrometry and proteomics, which were critical to the completion of her PhD in 2020. She then joined the Proteomics team at the School of Science, ECU in February, 2020. Her current work is focused on the study of grain cross contamination and novel causative agents for Non-responsive Coeliac Disease.
