James Cook University

Ariana is a postdoctoral research fellow at James Cook University, having completed her PhD at The University of Queensland in 2017. As an ichthyoarchaeologist, she studies the remains of fish recovered from island and coastal settings to explore the ways that people have interacted with fisheries in the past. Ariana is interested in the dialogue between humans and the environment and how this has shaped human cultures, landscape dynamics, and biodiversity through time.

As part of CABAH, she will consider human and environmental factors that impact long-term reef health. Ariana’s research will aim to provide a deep time perspective for contemporary fisheries management and conservation agendas within the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park.

An essential item in Ariana’s toolkit
