- Education and Outreach
krill, zooplankton, biochemical
I work collaboratively across nations and disciplines, contributing to research covering aspects of biological oceanography, sea ice ecology, zooplankton (krill) research and marine oils. My work contributes to the understanding of the role of krill in the Southern Ocean ecosystem and the likely impacts of climate change to krill. I have been involved in mentoring and teaching the next generation of Antarctic ecologists. I have been fortunate to have undertaken numerous Antarctic science expeditions both at sea and on station over an extended period of time. I am currently the graduate research training coordinator for the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science.

Email correspondence with APECS members regarding career advice (including
alternative careers in polar/cryospheric issues), research skills, data
management and occasional research-specific discussions/questions.
