The lab is headed by Camilla Whittington. Members of our lab are researching a range of questions centred around viviparity (live birth), complex trait evolution, reproductive physiology, genomics, and conservation biology.

We are a friendly, supportive, and hardworking lab. We encourage lab members to get involved in our collaborative research projects with scientists from across Australia, Europe, South America, and the USA. We also encourage active involvement in lab and departmental activities, and attendance at national and international conferences.

We are based in the School of Life and Environmental Sciences at the University of Sydney, on the beautiful Camperdown campus situated in the heart of Sydney.
