Christopher Turbill

Christopher Turbill is a researcher in animal physiological ecology at the Hawkesbury Institute for the Environment, University of Western Sydney. He gained a PhD in 2006 from the University of New England and then conducted postdoctoral fellowships awarded by the Austrian Science Fund and Australian Research Council (DECRA). Christopher’s research aims to integrate thermal and metabolic physiology with behavioural ecology to understand how animals interact with their environment. His work has revealed the important ecological consequences of controlled variation in body temperature by mammals and its links with metabolic energy expenditure, activity and the evolution of different life-history strategies.
