Murdoch Business School is an education management institution which specializes in Tertiary education, Research, University, Post Graduate Education, and Executive Education.
I held the inaugural Chair in Fisheries Science in the School of Veterinary and Life Sciences (formerly the School of Biological Sciences and Biotechnology) at Murdoch University , Western Australia and was the Director of the Centre for Fish, Fisheries and Aquatic Ecosystems Research from 2005 until 2012. In 2013, I became the Leader of the of Environmental and Conservation Sciences Cluster at Murdoch and my title changed to Professor of Marine Ecology and Conservation. I am also a member of the Asia Research Centre at Murdoch. My research at CSIRO and Murdoch focusses on investigating the linkages between coastal habitats, fisheries production (particularly penaeid prawns) and biodiversity and stock enhancement across northern Australia and south-east Asia. I am also interested in the population biology of fish and cetaceans the the interactions between fisheries and protected, threatened and endangered species. I am passionate about my teaching and supervising the development of research students in Honours, Masters and PhD programs related to my fields of expertise.
