Preserving our marine biodiversity...the world is our oyster!

Investigating over 1000km of Australian coastline, Dominic McAfee has found that oysters not only reduce the influence climate plays in determining invertebrate communities but that oysters can reduce heat stress under hotter conditions. This could mean that oyster restoration could be used as a climate adaptation strategy, allowing reef inhabitants more time to adapt with climate change.

"Parasitic worm spit: how it heals, then kills."

FameLab Australia 2014 winner Michael grew up in Brisbane. A confirmed geek from six years old, science would always be a passion. Genetics captured his imagination in high school and university, but it wasn’t to be. After attempting to fly during a cycling accident, his face broke his fall and eventuated in graduation delays. But, through a convoluted series of wonderful events he now loves all things wormy and toxic at James Cook University.
