Professor of Marine Biology and Executive Director of C3, UTS
As the Executive Director of The Plant Functional Biology and Climate Change Cluster (C3), Peter leads a dynamic, multidisciplinary team dedicated to improving predictions about the impacts of climate change.
Over the past 20 years his research has examined seagrasses, freshwater macrophytes, macroalgae and terrestrial plants from the scale of whole organisms to cellular and biochemical processes.
Because of Peter's expertise in the measurement of photosynthetic processes in seagrasses he is a member of the Blue Carbon International Scientific Working Group, formed under the auspices of the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, United Nations Environmental Program and the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission. In addition he also is an invited member of the Integrated Marine Observing System National Bio-optical Working Group.
