Personal profile


I am a marine ecologist and fisheries biologist at Macquarie University, where I lead the Marine Ecology Group (MEG). I have over 30 years of experience assessing the healthy functioning of our oceans and understanding the human-induced challenges they face.  My research group and I have a particular focus on threatened species and biodiversity, and on optimising recreational and commercial fishing practices to maximise the sustainability of species and maintain resilient systems.  I have experience in aquaculture of a diversity of marine species, from barramundi to sea urchins.  I am Chair of the NSW Fisheries Scientific Committee and sit on the Scientific Advisory Committee for the Sydney Institute of Marine Science. I am Chair of the Scientific Committee for the 2021 Conference for the Australian Marine Science Association.  I am also a member of the Technical Advisory Panel for Plastic Oceans Australasia and am an editor for the journal Oceans.
