    Jess is an ecological modeller with the Australian Antarctic Division and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre. She has always had a passion for the marine environment and feels privileged to be in a career where she can follow this passion. Jess has worked on coral reef ecosystems in Indonesia, the Philippines and Mexico, and more recently has been working on Southern Ocean ecosystems. She still enjoys diving on tropical reefs, which provides a good balance to the chilly temperatures of field work in Antarctica.

  • Professor Craig Johnson

    Craig is a marine community ecologist and Director of the Marine and Antarctic Futures Centre in the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) at the University of Tasmania.

    Craig is a marine community ecologist and Director of the Marine and Antarctic Futures Centre in the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) at the University of Tasmania.

    His research is broadly concerned with the dynamics of temperate and tropical reef communities and Antarctic pelagic systems, as well as the science that underpins responsible management of marine systems. Craig works about equally with marine animals and algae, and his research is divided between field work, strongly focused on conducting ecological experiments underwater, and building computer models of marine system dynamics. His research is published in over 120 peer-reviewed publications including two edited books.
