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.

  • Email Exchange
  • SCAR Open Science Conferences
