Perry Beasley-Hall is a postdoctoral researcher in the Australian Centre for Evolutionary Biology and Biodiversity (ACEBB) at the University of Adelaide. She is currently working on the molecular evolution of subterranean diving beetles and their thermal tolerances. Her research interests include the parallel evolution of subterranean lifestyles, insect phylogenetics and molecular evolution, and systematic entomology overall. Perry is a board member of the Australian Entomological Society and is actively engaged in increasing the visibility of women and LGBT+ people in the sciences.
Major research interests include:
- the parallel acquisition of subterranean lifestyles in insects
- the genomic consequences of a transition underground
- insect phylogenetics, molecular systematics, and biogeography
