 Honours Students
Haley Arnold
Haley is conducting a research project to explore the effects of land management on tree diversity and composition in forested parks in California. The study aims to provide some insight to the implications of differing management regimes on forest health and functioning.
Supervisor: Professor Anne Magurran
Ashley Bae
Co-advised by Dr. Maria Dornelas and Dr. Simon Northridge, Ashley is interested in marine conservation, food security, and fish stocks’ responses to human influence and climate change. For her senior honours project, Ashley will collect and assess catch data in an artisanal small-scale coral reef fishery in N. Palawan, Philippines.
Supervisors: Dr Maria Dornelas and Dr Simon Northridge
Rowan Stanforth
Rowan is an undergraduate Biology student with an interest in a range of different areas. He has an enthusiasm for Evolutionary Biology, specifically how social traits arise in different organisms. Recently he has been interested in the extra-pair mating behaviour in monogamous birds but really enjoys aspects of ecology and conservation as well. He is unsure exactly of what he wants to do in the future but would love to have the opportunity to do a PhD and conduct his own research.

Gracie Wilson
Gracie is a mature 2nd year undergraduate biology student. She has been involved in marine mammal surveying and carrying out plankton trawls to collect data and help teach young children about plankton during the summer with her husband and daughter for the past 10 years on the Isle of Mull, which was partly what inspired her interest in marine biology. She hopes to complete her degree in either marine biology or ecology and conservation and go on to do a masters and/or a PhD. In the future she hopes to work in research and teaching, her main field of interest is coral reefs with a particular emphasis on how the ecosystem works and how species coexist. She is also interested in marine conservation and climate change.
