About Dr Camilla Whittington

My team’s research aims to understand the genetic basis of complex evolutionary innovations. We're especially interested in understanding the evolution of pregnancy and the placenta. Through this research, we are also working to increase our knowledge of the fundamental biology of some of Australia’s unique native species: sharks, pot-bellied seahorses, marsupials, and lizards. Our interests encompass evolutionary biology, genetics and genomics, physiology, anatomy and histology, animal behaviour, and conservation.

Dr Camilla Whittington is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences.
