Emeritus Professor

Professor William Sherwin

Faculty of Science
Biological, Earth & Env Sci

Molecular genetics in biodiversity management and fundamental evolutionary biology:  Sherwin’s multidisciplinary team introduced information theory methods to forecasting and measuring biodiversity levels from molecules to ecosystems.  This is used by many researchers and is underpinned by the work of Sherwin’s lab on molecular diversity of endangered, pest, and harvested wildlife.  

1986-1990: Various teaching or research positions at government agencies and universities

1991-2019: UNSW Sydney EERC BEES (and predecessors) finishing as Professor

2020-present:  UNSW Sydney EERC BEES Emeritus Professor
