Julian Beaman

PhD Candidate/Research Assistant

Julian completed a Bachelor of Arts and Sciences with Honours in Ecology from the University of Sydney in 2011. The topic of his Honours thesis, supervised by Frank Seebacher, was on the mechanistic link between development and reversible acclimation in mosquitofish.White-lab_Profile_Jules

Julian commenced his PhD in 2013 at the University of Queensland under the supervision of Craig White, Daniel-Ortiz Barrientos (The University of Queensland), and Frank Seebacher (University of Sydney). His PhD research focuses on the evolution of metabolic allometry. He is studying the quantitative genetics of metabolic rate, growth rate, and body mass in the speckled cockroach, Nauphoeta cinerea.

Julian recently took up a research assistant position in the Evolutionary Physiology lab while he completes his PhD thesis.
