We are happy to announce that research led by Lucy Arrowsmith has been published in Frontiers in Marine Science! This research, ‘First Insights into the Horizontal Movements of Whale Sharks (Rhincodon typus) in the Northern Arabian Sea,’ shows the first data of whale sharks tagged in the northern Arabian Sea off the western coast of the Indian state of Gujarat.
he Sequeira Lab is excited to announce that we have recently returned from our first field trip to Shark Bay or “Gathaagudu” as it is called by the Malgana Peoples, the traditional owners of this region in Western Australia.
Sequeira lab is currently advertising two fantastic opportunities for Research Associate positions with our lab! We are looking for curious, enthusiastic and self-driven researchers looking to further develop their quantitative skills and expand their horizons through marine animal movement ecology. One position focuses strongly on the analyses of large datasets, computer modelling, and advanced statistics. The other also involves coordinating remote field expeditions to remote areas of the West Australian coastline (Shark Bay) to tag turtles, dugong and sharks.
SequeiraLab is excited to announce that our recent publication led by Ana Sequeira on a standardisation framework for biologging data has made the cover of Methods in Ecology and Evolution! The collaborative project involved more than 40 contributors, including key members of IMOS, AODN, ATN, ONR and OTN, whom came together at the Marine Megafauna Task Team (MMTT) workshop during the OceansOBS'19 conference in Hawaii.
Mike Taylor has presented his PhD Proposal, one of the first major milestones of his PhD. Feedback that he receives on his project looking at grazing marine megafauna will help shape the rest of his PhD.
We are excited to report that Charlotte has submitted her PhD thesis.
Hannah Calich, Lucy Arrowsmith, Michelle VanCompernolle, and Megan Meyers to present their research at a 4-day retreat in Albany (Western Australia) organised by the University of Western Australia’s (UWA) Oceans Graduate School (OGS)!
Dr Ana Sequeira has joined the dissertation committee for Ms Arina Favilla who is doing her PhD degree at the University of California, Santa Cruz (USCS).
We are excited to see what 2021 holds for Sequeiralab
