Personal profile

Biography

I am fascinated by the evolution and distribution of life, especially in Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. My research uses emerging genetic techniques to untangle the evolutionary processes that have led to Antarctica's unique biodiversity and how it might be impacted by future change. Currently, I am reviewing the genetic structure of all Antarctic flora and fauna in order to highlight vulnerable populations and to support conservation decisions. Throughout my Doctorate and postdoctoral research I have discovered cryptic species in the deep sea, genetically tracked the spread of invasive species, demonstrated speciation processes occurring across the sub-Antarctic and shed light on environmental factors that affect the abundance of species in Antarctica. I have also been involved in large collaborative efforts to document the marine life of the Southern Ocean and monitor environmental impacts on Antarctic marine ecosystems. I have extensive fieldwork experience throughout the world and have been engaged in promoting conservation through scientific outreach and education, both professionally and in a volunteer capacity.
