We love to use genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic tools to learn more about marine organisms. We are interested in blue skies applications, like understanding more about ecological and evolutionary processes driving the patterns of diversity we see in marine taxa today and also more applied questions, like understanding fisheries stock structure to inform management, solving bottlenecks in aquaculture and investigating more about toxins and slimes in cephalopods with real world applications for medicines and biomimetics. We work on organisms from a range of environments – the tropics to Antarctica and coastal waters to the deep-sea.
