Prof. Ceridwen Fraser (Marine Science), Dr. Sergio Morales ( Microbiology and Immunology), and Prof. Neil Gemmell (Anatomy). Before joining the University of Otago, William was based at Massey University, Albany, where he examined population genomics and mitochondrial genomics of an extremely polymorphic marine isopod for his Masters of science thesis.

William's current PhD research is focused on examining how the environment and host genetics interact to shape the microbiome of the large microalgae Durvillaea antarctica, aiming to understand genotype-environment interactions that influence both the microbiome and environmental tolerances.
