General Responsibilities

I am currently working as a postdoctoral researcher working within the Aquatic Animal Health research group lead by Associate Professor Barbara Nowak.  My research background in aquatic animal health primarily involves finfish physiology (respiratory, cardiovascular and metabolic), disease related pathophysiology, immunology and to a lesser degree nutritional 'digestive' health.  Research this year has predominantly been with the South Australian southern bluefin tuna industry but has also involved work with the Tasmanian salmonid industry.
