Simon began his science career studying how Antarctic sea-ice algae survive through the long-dark polar winter.
As our Restoration Scientist, Simon’s work is focused on how we measure and report on the impact and success of our marine restoration and conservation projects. A key role for Simon is overseeing and implementing monitoring for our marine conservation programs in Australia and integrating science into the design and delivery of marine restoration projects.
Simon has a PhD in marine ecology from the University of Tasmania. He commenced working at TNC in 2016, and works from our Adelaide office.
