Cara Van Der Wal

I am a PhD student interested in the phylogenetics, population genetics and evolution of crustaceans

I am passionate about the environment and conserving biodiversity. I have a background in marine biology and have combined this with computational biology to study systematics and evolution. My study species are crustaceans, a diverse and unique group of Arthropods.
