The Lab focuses on addressing specific questions of relevance for the conservation of marine species and the ocean, so if this sounds like you, check out this opportunity to come join our team!

Our research covers a range of topics, from predicting patterns of marine megafauna occurrence and movement, to the development of modelling tools to understand marine processes and assist conservation. We have projects involving field work in the beautiful World Heritage Area of Shark Bay, Western Australia, working with a range of marine megafauna species, such as turtles, sharks and dugongs!
