NSW Department of Primary Industries
I’m a research scientist with the NSW Government, mainly working on marine biodiversity and marine parks. I’ve been based in the Solitary Islands Marine Park for the past decade, which is a very interesting place to work as there is an incredible mix of tropical, subtropical and temperature species due to the influence of the East Australian Current. I love the latitudinal gradient we have in Australia, and have also worked as a marine scientist in Townsville and Tasmania. I’m interested in all things to do with the sea, but particularly fishes and sharks and their ecology and conservation. I am very interested in changes to biodiversity associated with oceanographic and climatic changes.
