Innovation, Passion, Rigour.

PEAC LAB is a research group based at the Harry Butler Institute (, part of Murdoch University in Perth, Australia. 


We are passionate about all research regarding the the ecology, physiology and evolution of marine megafauna and have developed particularly deep expertise in the field of animal-attached remote sensing, or BioLogging.


Our research spans blue-skies topics aimed at understanding the ecology and evolution of marine megafauna to applied research that address salient issues in their management. Our work is done in collaboration with a broad suite of international research partners, First Nations Traditional Owner groups, as well as NGOs and government agencies.


At PEAC, we recognise and value diverse ways of working and put great emphasise on the well-being of our group members.

Get in touch if you would like to engage with us.
