Who We Are
Dr Daniele Cagnazzi, Project Leader
I am originally from Milano, Italy where I graduated in Environmental Science with specialisation in marine biotic resources in 2005 at University of Bologna with a final research thesis on “Population estimates of indo-Pacific humpback
dolphins in the Great Sandy Strait, Queensland, Australia”. I moved permanently to Australia in 2006 to conduct a PhD at Southern Cross University on the conservation status and population genetic of Australian Snubfin and Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins in Central Queensland. After the PhD I worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Central Queensland University and Southern Cross University.
At present, I am a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Marine Ecology Research Centre, School of Environment, Science & Engineering, Southern Cross University. I have broad research interest in population ecology, conservation biology, conservation genetics and toxicology. Inshore dolphins species and their interaction with anthropogenic activities are the primarily subject of my research.
