The Sequeira Lab is back in Gathaagudu (Shark Bay, Western Australia) for some turtle and shark satellite tagging research, and this Saturday (December 3rd) we are hosting an afternoon of nature, storytelling, and community in the Denham Townhall!
SequeriaLab leader, Dr Ana Sequeira, recently flew back to the west coast to participate in an exciting new project satellite tagging endangered Australian sea lions on Carnac Island off Perth, Western Australia.
During her visit to Perth in the last couple of weeks, our lab leader Dr Ana Sequeira had the chance to give a presentation to the Western Australian (WA) Naturalists' Club about the movement of marine megafauna in Shark Bay.
We are excited to announce that our PhD Candidate, Michelle VanCompernolle, has just received a Robson & Robertson Award! This award will help further Michelle's PhD progress and expand her professional network through participating at an upcoming international conference.
Dr. Ana Sequeira was the keynote speaker for marine megafauna, at the Australian Marine Science Association (AMSA) conference in Cairns last week.
The Sequeira Lab is excited to report that our PhD candidate Hannah Calich has now passed the viva voce for her thesis entitled ‘Describing animal movement with statistical physics methods: insights into the ecology and physiology of migratory sharks’.
Our group leader Dr Ana Sequeira has been announced as a finalist in the West Australian Premier's Science Awards! These awards recognise and celebrate the outstanding scientific research and engagement taking place in Western Australia.
Ben D’Antonio has recently completed one of the first major milestones towards his PhD candidature at The University of Western Australia: the presentation of his PhD defence in front of a panel of experts! This is a key step on Ben PhD journey and was the perfect opportunity for Ben to receive feedback and improve on the research he is planning to undertake over the next few years.
It is with great excitement that we announce our lab leader, Dr Ana Sequeira, has started a new journey as an Associate Professor at the Australian National University (ANU) - and what a better time to commit long-term to doing exciting marine research than World Ocean's Day!
Sequeira Lab team members are excited to have recently returned from a second (very successful!) shark tagging trip to Shark Bay.
