joining UCL, Craig worked in environmental consultancy in
Western Australia, designing and running large
scale marine environmental assessment and monitoring programs for the Energy
and Resources sectors. Before working in industry, Craig taught marine ecology,
experimental design and statistical analysis for five years at Sydney
University (where he was also a U2000 Research Fellow) and for three years at
Deakin University in south west Victoria. Prior to that, he was a post-doctoral
research associate at the University of Melbourne and before that
worked as a senior (abalone) fisheries biologist at the South Australian
Research and Development Institute in Adelaide.
I am interested in the how exploration and development of energy and mineral resources affects the
marine environment and in how we can better manage the impacts of these through environmental monitoring and adaptive management. Specific areas of research interest include:
Environmental Impact Assessment and Monitoring
Developing efficient and statistically powerful (asymmetric) designs to detect changes in a range of marine organisms, ranging from corals, seagrass and fish, to whales, dolphins and turtles, and from a range of impacts associated with energy and resources developments (see below).
Design of Reactive Monitoring Programmes & Adaptive Management
Reactive monitoring is increasingly being implemented as part of large-scale adaptive management programmes. I am interested in appraising monitoring approaches used in other fields such as quality control or medicine for wider application in environmental management.
- Port construction and dredging activities
- Oil spills, offshore drilling and seismic activities
- Offshore infrastructure and shipping
- Renewable energy infrastructure (offshore wind, wave, tidal systems)
- Seabed mining
- Introduced marine species
- Desalination and ecotoxicological studies.
