Researcher Profiles

Dr Dominic Mcafee

University Research Associate
Faculty of Sciences

I am a marine biologist specialising in oyster ecology. The past five years I have been investigating the capacity of oyster habitat to protect coastal biodiversity from the extremities of climate change, conducting my research along the east coast of Australia and in Hong Kong. I am also part of the communications team and research and development working group for Australia's Shellfish Reef Restoration Network.
