John Beardall was originally trained as a microbiologist and then completed a PhD, on the physiology and biochemistry of phytoplankton photosynthesis, at the University of London. He moved to Australia in 1982, initially to an appointment at La Trobe University then later to Monash University where he is currently a Professor in the School of Biological Sciences. He is a nationally and internationally recognised expert in algal physiology, especially photosynthesis and respiration. His main research interests at present relate to understanding the likely impacts of global change on phytoplankton and seaweeds, and on the productivity of the oceans.
