Dr Dominic Mcafee

University Research Associate
Faculty of Sciences

I am a marine ecologist with a special interest in shellfish ecology. My research is heavily focused on applied marine conservation management and restoration ecology. Much of my research has focused on the capacity of wild oyster populations to protect coastal biodiversity from the extremities of climate change. The majority of this work has been conducted along the east coast of Australia and in Hong Kong.
