Personal profile

Biography

I am passionate about understanding the evolution and distribution of biodiversity in Antarctica. My PhD uncovered extensive cryptic speciation and localised adaptation in Antarctic crustaceans. Since then I have contributed to a wide range of environmental projects, including an in-situ study of ocean acidification effects on polar benthos. I have extensive fieldwork experience in the Antarctic as well as the tropics, and have been engaged in promoting conservation through scientific outreach, both in Australia and abroad. My postdoctoral research has resolved relationships among sub-Antarctic invertebrates and shed light on the evolutionary processes that have led to their unique biodiversity. I am currently reviewing the genetic structure of all Antarctic flora and fauna in order to support conservation decision-making.
