Allyson O’Brien’s research

I am a marine ecologist interested in understanding how genomics can be used to answer ecological questions. My current work is focussing on environmental DNA (eDNA) tools and how they can be used by environmenal managers and citizen scientists.

I work as a Research Fellow in the School of BioSciences with Professor Mick Keough. I am associated with the Centre for Aquatic Pollution Identification and Management (CAPIM) at The University of Melbourne. My research ranges from ecotoxicology to coummunity ecology, molecular ecology and taxonomy. Most recently I have starting dabbling in metabarcoding and metabolomics. I am also interested in exploring how to value the ecosystem services that soft sediments provide so the impacts on this widespread and  important habitat can be properly assessed.
