Floriaan is a CSIRO postdoctoral researcher focussing on adaptation genomics and epigenomics of cartilaginous and bony fishes. Floriaan recently completed his PhD at the University of Tasmania where he investigated the sex-specific connectivity patterns of sharks. Previous research areas include eDNA, metabarcoding and population genetics, as well as invasive species ecology and bioinformatics. His current project looks at the adaptive potential of fishes to cope with changing environments. Overall, Floriaan's research aims to provide a better understanding of a species' ability to persist under environmental and anthropogenic pressures (i.e. move or adapt).
