The Australian Taxonomy

Community Directory

Shannon Corrigan

I am an Aussie expat currently residing in the United States, working at the Florida Museum of Natural History. I have broad research interests that include Biodiversity, Systematics, Phylogenomics, Population Genomics, Evolution and Conservation Biology. I predominantly study cartilaginous fishes (Chondrichthyes), using genomic approaches to address various questions related to their diversity, systematics and evolution, under the umbrella of the Chondrichthyan Tree of Life Project. I collaborate heavily with researchers at the Australian National Fish Collection, CSIRO on Australian (and global) fauna. I ultimately hope to return to Australia and am therefore interested in staying connected with, and contributing to the efforts of, the broader Australian Taxonomy Community.
