Pippa Moore

Former Research Fellow

University of Queensland

Pippa has just returned to the United Kingdom after working as a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Queensland node of the Centre of Excellence where she looked at the effects of past climate on the ecology of coralline algae. Prior to joining the Centre she spent 13 years in the UK where she did a PhD in Marine Biology (2005) jointly between the Marine Biological Association of the U.K and the University of Plymouth. She is broadly interested in community ecology and more particularly in understanding how species, populations and assemblages are likely to respond to anthropogenic impacts, particularly climate change
