Dr Dominique Potvin


Dominique convenes all Animal Ecology courses at the Fraser Coast campus. Dominique's research interests encompass two major avenues of study: 1) The proximate and ultimate sources of selection contributing to the evolution of vocalizations, especially birdsong; and 2) The impact of anthropogenic activities such as urbanization, noise and land use changes on vertebrate populations. Dominique uses a very interdisciplinary and broad-scale approach to investigate these themes, incorporating genetics, bioacoustics, ecology, physiology and even neuroscience.

Dominique also has an interest in Bayesian statistics, ornithological methods and evidence-based university teaching.

Dominique was appointed as the Associate Editor for the journal Emu: Australasian Ornithology, in 2017, and an Outreach Officer for the Australasian Society for the Study of Animal Behaviour in 2016.

Any students looking interested in pursuing a potential research project please feel free to contact Dominique via e-mail.
