My name is Dr Zoë Doubleday and I am on a mission to build knowledge and develop solutions to address today’s pressing environmental challenges.


I run the brand new MARIS lab (MArine Research for Innovative Solutions) with a passionate and engaged group of students and staff.


And I regularly engage with the media and undertake science communication research to ensure science is read, understood and remembered.


To students on the hunt for research training opportunities: I have PhD and Honours projects available, including on #octopus and #seafood provenance.


Marine Science & Ecology

I am an ecologist and marine scientist. I investigate how marine plants and animals respond, for better or worse, to our changing environment (see Google Scholar).

I am passionate about cephalopods and fish and "weedy" ecology, as well as using biominerals to unlock the environmental and biological histories of animals.


However, I haven't done this alone! I collaborate with terrific researchers and work with a talented and passionate team within my brand new lab: MARIS


Science communication research

I am on a mission to boost the readability and readership of what scientists write, particularly peer-reviewed publications. 

I have researched, published and traveled - learning what catches the eye of the reader and the media. My creative approach to scientific writing has caught the attention of Nature, PNAS, Trends in Ecology & Evolution, The Conversation, the Australian Academy of Science, and numerous research institutions in Australia and abroad.
