Peter Doll


PhD Candidate


BSc (Hons I), James Cook University (2018)


James Cook University




Peter grew up in the Bavarian Alps, Germany, but his love for the ocean and its inhabitants brought him to North Queensland and JCU, where he completed his Bachelor of Science with Honours (I) in 2018. Under the supervision of Prof. Geoff Jones and Prof. Philip Munday, Peter examined habitat specialisation and the consequences of habitat loss in coral reef gobies of the genus Eviota. After working as a research assistant for Prof. Morgan Pratchett at JCU in 2019 and 2020, Peter started his PhD candidature in 2020 under the supervision of Prof. Morgan Pratchett, Prof. Andrew Hoey, Dr. Ciemon Caballes, Jason Doyle and Dr. Sven Uthicke. His PhD research investigates habitat suitability and patterns of larval settlement for crown-of-thorns starfish (CoTS) in the western Pacific. Using innovative genetic analyses, Peter and collaborators at AIMS and JCU aim to develop an effective early warning system for future CoTS population outbreaks to mitigate their detrimental impacts on coral reefs.
