Rachel King


PhD Candidate


BAvSci, BPhil, Msc, PhD candidate


James Cook University




Originally from Sydney, Rachel has had a strong passion for ocean conservation and the water since she was very young. She started pursuing her dream at Macquarie University completing a Bachelor of Advanced Science with a specialisation in biology and a Bachelor of Philosophy before moving to Townsville to finish her studies, completing a Master of Science. Mid-year 2021 she began her PhD under the supervision Dr. Tom Bridge (JCU), Dr. Peter Cowman (JCU) and secondary AIMS supervisors. Rachel has broad interests in the conservation, biodiversity and biogeography of coral reef systems. Her project titled “An integrated taxonomic approach to understanding the diversity and biogeography of corals on the Great Barrier Reef”, will use novel phylogenetic techniques to answer key taxonomic and evolutionary questions about the history and future of corals on the Great Barrier Reef. Rachel’s desk is located in Room 123, building 19.
