Dr Stuart Corney is a senior lecturer and Associate Head Learning and Teaching at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania. Stuartโ€™s research focuses on the interface between the physical environment and ecosystem dynamics. He is particularly interested in understanding how climate variability and anthropogenic climate change influences individual and population success of Southern Ocean marine species. Working in a multidisciplinary field necessarily involves collaboration and Stuart has built a diverse group of collaborators with a range of specialisations from ocean modellers through to ecologists and field biologists representing many organisations around the world.
Stuart is currently co-chair of the IMBeR regional program Integrating Climate and Ecosystem Dynamics in the Southern Ocean (ICED), is part of the leadership team coordinating the Southern Ocean Collaborative Centre for the UN Decade for Ocean Sciences and is the Southern Ocean representative on the Predicted Ocean collaborative centre for the UN Decade.
Stuartโ€™s current focus is developing an earth system model that includes krill life history and ecosystem dynamics.
