I am an Australian marine biologist living in the United States, where I am Director of Research and Conservation at Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta. My research explores themes of diversity and health in the aquatic environment, from individual animals to ecosystems. I was associate editor of DeepSeaNews from 2012-2015.

I studied at The University of Queensland and have held positions at the Wildlife Conservation Society, Cornell University and Stony Brook University. I am an adjunct professor at the University of Georgia, Georgia State University & the Georgia Institute of Technology. I helped found Ch’ooj Ajauil AC, a non-profit conservation NGO based in Cancun Mexico, which strives for improved conservation of the extraordinary biodiversity of the Yucatan Upwelling Zone, home to the largest aggregation of whale sharks known to science.
