We use information from genetics and genomics to address pure and applied research questions in population, conservation and evolutionary biology.
Our emphasis is on aquatic animals (particularly fishes, marine mammals and invertebrates) – but we also enjoy working with terrestrial organisms!
We do fieldwork in Australia and in other regions of the world including Amazonia, Patagonia, Gulf of California, southern Africa, Pampas, Cerrado, Galapagos, Indo-Pacific and Antarctica.

  • Adaptive resilience to projected future climates 5 Aug 20. Our lab's work published in PNAS found that the potential of species to adapt to climate change depends on where they evolved. We looked at the capacity of life to respond to future climates in three different regions: temperate and subtropical regions, and in deserts. We did this by studying rainbowfishes from Australia.
