Charlie Huveneers was a PhD student at Macquarie University, Sydney. Originally from Belgium, he worked on the biology and ecology of wobbegong sharks along the New South Wales coast.

Charlie examined wobbegong sharks in the fish collection. He also used the otolith collection to identify fish found in the stomach of wobbegongs and dolphins in order to investigate their diets.

He visited the Australian Museum on several occasions during July and August 2004.
