Professor of Marine biology, The University of Melbourne

I am an Associate Professor of marine biology at the University of Melbourne. At heart I am a larval fish biologist, with a keen interest in understanding how ecological processes that occur in early life influence the dynamics of populations. My research has recently taken a more applied focus by identifying the primary causes of extinction risk in fishes and coastal marine ecosystems, in order to inform better water, pollution, and fisheries management policies. Ultimately, my aim is to position REEF to be well placed to provide new solutions to some of society’s most pressing marine and coastal environmental challenges.
