Prof Stefano Mariani

School of Biological and Environmental Sciences

I am a marine ecologist, population geneticist and evolutionary biologist, with an innate fondness for fish.
I am interested in studying biodiversity at various organisational levels, with the support of the universal language of DNA sequences. My vision and hope is that my work can contribute to the sustainable management and conservation of our beautiful blue planet.
