Chuan Lei is a dedicated PhD candidate in Riginos Lab at The University of Queensland, where his research lies at the intersection of Biotechnology and Conservation Biology. With a background in both fields, Chuan focuses on the conservation and evolutionary biology of anemonefish species. His current project addresses the challenges posed by climate change and human activities, particularly the bleaching of sea anemones, resulting in increased instances of coexistence and potential hybridization among anemonefish species. The implications for biodiversity, especially for endangered species, are profound and yet largely unexplored. Chuan's research utilizes genomics to unravel these mysteries, aiming to inform and improve conservation strategies for the protection of our natural world.
