My research focuses on the systematics of two major groups of marine parasites, the Trematoda infecting teleost fishes and the Cestoda infecting sharks and rays. In my PhD studies (completed in 2011) I surveyed the rich, but mostly undescribed, fauna of tetraphyllidean cestodes in sharks of Moreton Bay, in south-east Queensland, Australia. Since graduating, I have shifted my research focus to trematodes of tropical and temperate fishes, with my current work investigating a wide range of trematode families in the Tropical Indo-west Pacific. My research integrates classical morphological taxonomy with phylogenetic and ecological data for species delineation and higher-level trematode systematics.
