Projects per year
Sam Banks is a Professor in the College of Engineering, IT and the Environment specialising in Molecular Ecology and Conservation Biology. His research combines genomics and field ecology. His recent work examines how fire influences population dynamics and genetic diversity in natural populations, as well as using genetics to understand movement patterns in saltwater crocodiles. Sam holds degrees in Arts and Science and has a PhD in Genetics. His research has been published in Trends in Ecology and Evolution, Proceedings of the National Academy of Science and Molecular Ecology. When not at work, Sam can be found planning bushwalking adventures and unsuccessful fishing trips around the Northern Territory.
