Matthew Lockett is a PhD student at the University of Technology, Sydney. He has been working on introduced marine fishes since 1995. He started investigating introduced fishes in Port Phillip Bay, Victoria while working at Museum Victoria.
Matthew is currently in the final stages of his PhD, which is based on the introduced Trident Goby Tridentiger trigonocephalus. The main focus of this work is on the reproductive biology of this species, and factors that may affect its distribution and abundance.
Matthew is currently investigating larval gobiids (gobies, eleotrids and related species) from Sydney Harbour and is using the Australian Museum's larval fish collection to assist in identifying specimens.
He has been a regular visitor (and part time employee) to the Australian Museum Fish Department since 2001.
