Introduction, Associate Professor Peter Macreadie

My name is Peter Macreadie. I am an Associate Professor in Marine Science at Deakin University, where I am Head of the [Blue) Carbon Lab](http://www.bluecarbonlab.org%22%5DBlue. We specialise in the science and application of carbon sequestration within the oceans, namely vegetated coastal ecosystems: seagrass meadows, mangrove forests, and tidal marshes.

I’m looking forward to contributing expertise on biosequestration to XPrize in the Carbon Removal category

Thank you for joining, Peter! @pmac We do have a particular interest in Blue Carbon so that is great. We have a new discussion on the National Academies study here, which has some interesting implications re: Oceans!
