PRINCIPAL INVESTIGATOR

DR MORELIA CAMACHO-CERVANTES

I research invasive species, animal behaviour and biodiversity. I have used different species as models to investigate how invasive species affect the environments where they arrive. Currently I am devoting most of my time at the aquarium! but I also spent quite some time surveying rivers and cities. 

I did my PhD in Scotland at the University of St Andrews, researching behavioural mechanisms behind guppy invasions.

Also, I like to participate in assessments to help invasive species research to make it to policy and management. I am currently in the Expert Panel of the IPBES Assessment for Invasive Alien Species and involved in the GoFouling Project to protect marine environments from alien species.
