My major areas of research over the last 5 years can be divided into the following programs: biological oceanography (with special reference to presettlement fishes); ecology of jellyfishes; population dynamics of reef fishes; interactions between reef fish and organisms associated with reefs; the use of microchemistry to elucidate the environmental conditions experienced by fishes and jellyfishes (especially those related to pollution) and the connectivity of populations of fishes and jellyfishes.
Recent and current projects include:
My current research funding is from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and the National Environmental Science Programme (NESP)
Affiliations: I am a Distinguished Professor in Marine Biology within the Group ‘Marine Biology and Aquaculture’ and the College of Science and Engineering, James Cook University. I am also a Chief Investigator with the Australian Research Council funded Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies.
