Dr Renee Catullo

Renee is an evolutionary biologist interested in using big data to answer questions in macroevolution and macroecology.

Her research combines genetic, ecological, and trait data across broad geographic scales.

Renee’s project, Biodiversity informatics for conservation and biosecurity, aims to use big data tools to improve our ability to make informed decisions about Australia’s biodiversity and conservation needs, and to help make information-based decisions for improving our biosecurity.

Renee completed a Bachelor of Science at Oregon State University, and a PhD in evolutionary biology at the Australian National University.
