Shelley Templeman

Principal Research Scientist - Freshwater Ecology

Shelley’s broader research interests lie in better understanding the impacts of pollutants and contaminants in tropical aquatic ecosystems, as well as developing more suitable ecological monitoring tools to measure and mitigate pollutant impacts. Growing up on cattle properties in Central Australia seems an unlikely basis for an aquatic scientist; however, this experience also provided Shelley with some early insights into the interactions and impacts between humans and the environment. Since leaving school she has completed a range of undergraduate and post-graduate qualifications across Australia, mostly while performing a number of scientific roles in northern Australia, Indonesia and Antarctica. Her studies culminated in a PhD at James Cook University in 2012, investigating the bioindicator potential of jellyfishes to metal pollution.
