Professor Dustin Marshall is seeking an experienced ecologist / evolutionary biologist, who specialises in microalgal biology with a strong empirical background, to explore the ways in which size affects the structure and function of marine phytoplankton.
Professor Dustin Marshall is seeking a marine larval biologist, with strong quantitative skills, to explore the ways in which temperature affects the energetics of development in marine invertebrates.
Emily Lombardi, Candice Bywater and Craig White test the oxygen and capacity-limited thermal tolerance theory to understand how temperature affects performance.
We know that metabolic rate varies substantially between individuals of the same species, even after accounting for size and temperature. Amanda Pettersen investigates why.

Lockdown has provided an opportunity for researchers to spend time trawling the literature for data to use in meta-analyses. Here’s an overview of what some of our lab members have been working on.
Gonçalo Poças, Alexander Crosbie and Christen Mirth have explore the question: do juvenile diets determine adult size?
Giulia Ghedini and her colleagues have found that older communities of marine phytoplankton waste less energy than new or early successional communities.
