Theresa Rueger


PhD graduate


James Cook University



Theresa grew up in northern Germany and completed her BSc degree in Kiel, which included a research project at the IFM Geomar. During her undergraduate studies she volunteered with various conservation and research organisations and after some work with Discovery Bay marine lab in Jamaica, decided to dedicate herself to coral reef studies. She came to James Cook University in February 2011 to complete a MAppSc in marine biology and did a research project with Naomi Gardiner, which led to a PhD with Geoff Jones looking at social relationships in small habitat- dependent coral reef fish, for which she combines ecological, behavioural and genetic approaches.
