Our research concerns the evolution of benthic marine invertebrates in the Southern Ocean. Focusing on echinoderms and molluscs, we are establishing the genetic relationship between antarctic, subantarctic and deep-sea faunas to understand the diversification of these groups. Using fast evolving markers, we are also evaluating the population genetic structure of different invertebrate species with contrasting developmental modes.
- Mentor Panels
These panels are held at major international conferences and are coordinated by
APECS members. Participation involves a 2-3 hour commitment on the day
of the panel meeting.
- Career Development Presentations
Short presentations at conferences/workshops with a question/answer period.
- Career Development Workshop Sessions
Helping in the coordination and facilitation of sessions at major conferences
- One-on-One Mentoring
Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.
