My name is Peter Macreadie. I am an Associate Professor in Marine Science at Deakin University, where i head up the Blue Carbon Lab. We specialise in the science and application of carbon sequestration within the oceans, namely vegetated coastal ecosystems: seagrass meadows, mangrove forests, and tidal marshes. Here's a brief video about me: https://www.abc.net.au/7.30/push-to-protect-blue-carbon-sites/10737850

Bio
Dr Peter Macreadie is a marine scientist. He received his PhD in Marine Ecology in 2010 from the University of Melbourne. He held a University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowship from 2010-13 and an Australian Research Council (ARC) Discovery Early Career Researcher Award (DECRA) Fellowship from 2013-16. He joined Deakin University in 2016 as a Senior Lecturer where he established the Blue Carbon Lab (‘BCL’, www.bluecarbonlab.org), which currently consists of 22 members. In 2018, Macreadie was promoted to Associate Professor. BCL’s research focuses on carbon sequestration in the oceans, which includes a number of disciplines: ecology, microbiology, geology, chemistry, molecular biology, biogeochemistry, spatial science, and decision theory. Macreadie has published >100 peer-reviewed papers in top journals such as Nature Climate Change, PNAS, Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment, Global Change Biology, Proceedings of the Royal Society B, Ecology, Conservation Biology). Macreadie currently serves as the Chair of the Independent Scientific Advisory Board for the National Decommissioning Research Initiative, and sits on the Victorian Marine Coastal Council Science Panel. In 2011, Macreadie was listed in The Sydney Magazine’s top 100 most influential people in Sydney. He has received numerous Awards and Fellowships for his research, including: the 2015 David Syme Prize for ‘best original research in Australia undertaken in the previous two years in Biology, Physics, Chemistry or Geology’.
