Welcome! The Keough Lab is based in the School of BioSciences at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Our research primarily focuses on the ecology and behaviour of marine organisms and communities living in the temperate waters of southeastern Australia. We work in a variety of different marine habitats including the rocky shore, subtidal reefs, sea grass beds and sand/mudflats. Currently, our research falls into two broad categories:

Larval biology of marine organisms

Effects of disturbances and human activities in marine environments

You can find out more about these research areas by following the research tab and by looking at our publications.  You can also see some of our study systems through the images tab.
