Damian Dowling

Senior Research Fellow at Monash University

Damian is an ARC Australian Research Fellow at the School of Biological Sciences, Monash University. He obtained his PhD from the University of Melbourne, completing postdoctoral positions at Uppsala University in Sweden, and the University of Western Australia, before commencing at Monash in 2009. His research interests are in evolutionary biology, and represent a fusion of genetic and ecological approaches to the study of evolutionary dynamics and constraints to adaptation. Damian’s current focus is on mitochondrial genomes: their capacity to influence evolutionary dynamics, and the consequences for males of their maternal inheritance.
