Welcome to the Neff lab. Our research focuses on the behaviour, genetics and ecology of fishes. We collaborate with a number of other universities, industrial partners and government organizations, and are always interested in exploring new collaborative opportunities. We also encourage students interested in pursuing a graduate or undergraduate thesis project to apply. Additional details of our major research themes are provided below.

1. Understanding evolution and the genetics of adaptation

2. Neurobiology and endocrinology of behaviour

3. Conserving native biodiversity

4. Improving the efficiency and sustainability of aquaculture.
