Senior Research Scientist - Seagrass Ecology
Catherine is broadly interested in coastal marine ecology, with a particular emphasis on seagrass eco-physiology and ecology. Her current work is focused on flood impacts to seagrasses. This research focus has been triggered by widespread loss of seagrass throughout Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef following record floods in 2011. She aims to further our understanding of tropical seagrass ecology and to contribute to the protection of seagrass meadows in regions where livelihoods are particularly dependant on vibrant coastal systems.
