Summary

Senior Researcher and co-team leader of Environmental Technologies at the Cawthron Institute, New Zealand. Senior Lecturer at University of Auckland, New Zealand. Honorary Research Associate at Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand.

My research at the Cawthron Institute is highly applied to marine industries and focuses on the developement of High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) metabarcoding tools for biomonitoring diversity changes around operation sites.

At the University of Auckland, I combine 'real-world' and 'blue-sky' research applications. Projects are varied and include; i) metabarcoding Symbiodinium dinoflagellates in tropical foraminifera, corals and giant clams, ii) characterizing the diversity of benthic foraminifera in New Zealand using morphological and molecular approaches, iii) conducting phylogenetic analyses on tropical and temperate cyanobacteria, and iv) unvealing the diversity and dynamics of open-ocean plankton communities.
