Senior Lecturer, School of Biological Sciences, The University of Queensland

I find it difficult to sum up my research interests in a short paragraph, but probably the best clue to the variety of my interests can be gleaned from wading through the list of Lab Projects on my website. I'm fascinated by a plethora of questions and study systems, but my favorites centre around thermal acclimation responses in fish and amphibians and the behavioural ecology of fighting in crayfish. I ask ecological and evolutionary questions, but don't really care what tools I use to actually address these questions of interests. This makes for a varied and collaborator-rich research program. My research philosophy is easier to sum up and focuses on asking interesting questions with my mates. In other words doing science without feeling like you are slaving your guts out (although sometimes this is necessary)
