Research Interests

My research interests are in the sources of pollutants in catchments, transport of pollutants to the marine environment, the dispersal of land-based pollutants in coastal and marine environments and the effects of terrestrial pollutants on marine ecosystems. I am particularly interested in the following research areas: water quality in tropical coastal marine environments; the effects of sediments, nutrients, pesticides and other contaminants on coral reef and seagrass bed ecosystems; catchment sources of sediment, nutrient and pesticide discharge to coastal environments; land use practices which lead to enhanced rates of sediment, nutrient and pesticide discharge to coastal environments; river plume dynamics and biological, physical and chemical processes occurring in river plumes; temporal and spatial dynamics of water quality on the Great Barrier Reef; water quality management systems in coral reef environments. I have published over 100 peer reviewed articles in this field as well as more than 100 technical reports.

I am also heavily involved in policy advice to Australian governments regarding management of water quality issues for the Great Barrier Reef. I was the lead author of the Scientific Consensus Statement documenting the status of knowledge and management for water quality issues affecting the Great Barrier Reef for the Queensland Government in both 2008 and 2013 leading groups of more than 50 scientists and policy experts. I have been closely involved in the Water Quality Improvement Planning process for the GBR NRM regions over the last 10 years.
