He is recognised nationally and internationally for his work on harmful algal blooms impacting on human health, the fish farm and shellfish industries, their stimulation by coastal eutrophication and global spreading via ship’s ballast water. His current research focus is on the impact of climate change on phytoplankton in Australian coastal waters and the Southern Ocean. He was awarded the 2004 Eureka Prize for Environmental Research, elected a Fellow of the Australian Academy for Technological Sciences and Engineering in 2005 and currently serves as the Vice-President of the International Society for the Study of Harmful Algae.
