Welcome. I am molecular ecologist based at the Australian Institute of Marine Science and The UWA Oceans Institute in Perth, Western Australia.
My research focuses on marine ecosystem resilience to environmental change. I use molecular tools to explore a range of processes that influence the capacity of a population to resist, recover, and adapt to rising global temperatures and the increasing frequency of thermal stress events.
I have a background in population genetics and have worked on a variety of marine organisms including sponges, lobster, and fish. My current research focuses on reef-building corals, and combines genomic tools with physiological and ecological data on projects related to gene flow, adaptation, recovery, and ecosystem monitoring. The ultimate goal of my research is to help inform management on the quest to conserve our precious marine ecosystems.
