Thesis: Systematics, taxonomy and reproductive biology of Tacca (Dioscoreaceae)
Gwynne obtained her BSc. and MSc. from the National University of Singapore. Her research during that time was in the phylogeny, species limits and species richness estimation of three families of Diptera (Dolichopodidae, Sepsidae and Corethrellidae). She is interested in the systematics and the biogeography of Southeast Asian plants, particularly with regard to plant-insect interactions.
