AboutI am a biogeochemist working in coastal marine and estuarine systems principally in the area of physical-biological interactions. My previous research has included the influence of waves on seagrass ecology, sediment nutrient fluxes in estuaries, and tidal forcing of nutrient uptake on coral reefs. From 2010-2013, I worked as an Environmental Scientist for the NSW Office of Environment and Heritage (Estuaries and Coastal Catchments Unit). This work gave me an interest in applied research questions that address the many challenges faced by coastal ecosystems worldwide.
