Mawson Lakes, SA
  • Senior Lecturer
  • Engineering Science Faculty Office
  • Faculty of Engineering Science

Prior to 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.

Research Themes
Research Summary

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.

 Monitoring & Impacts of Energy and Resources Developments on Marine Ecosystems
  • 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.
