Tracey’s post-doctoral career includes the appointments of Research Biologist and Director of the Australian Marine Mammal Research Centre, Zoological Parks Board of NSW/ Faculty of Veterinary Science, University of Sydney. In 2008 Tracey moved to the Evolution and Ecology Research Centre at the University of New South Wales.
