I am the Director of Fisheries Research with NSW DPI. I decided that I was going to be a marine biologist the day I put a mask and snorkel on and put my head underwater. I am lucky enough to have worked in a diversity of Australia’s marine environments from the tropics to Antarctica. Not only am I curious about where marine animals live and what they do, I love learning about the processes that are responsible for what I see underwater. I carry out research on a range of species, but usually the molluscs (mussels, oysters, abalone), and I have a passion for the cephalopods (squid, octopus and cuttlefish).
