Position

ARC Future Fellowship
Biological Sciences

Biography

My main research and teaching interests are in evolution and conservation biology. I was born and raised in Uruguaiana - a town in the Pampas grassland in Brazil. In 1986 I moved to the coast to study Biological Oceanography (BSc and Msc), ichthyology and population genetics at University of Rio Grande. In 1996 I moved to Sydney for a PhD in fish evolutionary genetics, awarded by Macquarie University in 2001. I was a Gaylord Donnelley Environmental Research Fellow at Yale University (2001-2003) working in projects in Amazonia and the Galapagos, before returning to Australia for a tenure faculty position at Macquarie. I worked at Macquarie until 2009 as Associate Professor and head of the Molecular Ecology Lab and the Molecular Ecology Group for Marine Research (MEGMAR). In 2009 I moved to Adelaide to establish the Molecular Ecology Lab at Flinders University - today one of the most productive such labs in the country.

Research interests

My research illustrates how natural historians and molecular ecologists can contribute to our understanding of evolution and ecology and stimulate public interest about the importance of conserving biodiversity. A large component of the work carried out in my research group combines information from genetics, genomics and Earth sciences to understand the origins and evolutionary trajectories of populations and to inform conservation management. I currently work on projects in the areas of:

- ecological genomics: the use of genome-wide information to assess environmental correlates and adaptive potential of aquatic biodiversity (i.e. seascape and riverscape genomics);

- comparative phylogeography and speciation: the use of co-distributed datasets to infer population history and diversification;

- conservation and restoration genomics: the use of genetic and genomic knowledge to preserve threatened species;

- sociogenetics: the use of genetic data to understand kinship ties and behavior in social animals;

- phylogenetics: the reconstruction of the tree of life.

I am particularly fascinated about understanding biogeographic scenarios and evolutionary processes underlying population divergence and speciation in fishes. Past and current research includes work on fishes from Amazonia, Patagonia, Pampas, and southern Africa, coastal dolphins, sperm whales and blue whales from the Indian and Pacific Oceans, giant tortoises from the Galapagos, sharks, rays and sea turtles from Mexico and central America, lizards from the Brazilian Cerrado; and wombats, sharks, bony fishes, molluscs, crustaceans, tunicates and sea-urchins from Australia.
