Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge
About the presenter
Julie has extensive experience in biological oceanography, with a focus on food web dynamics in both marine and freshwater ecosystems with a special interest in microbial foodwebs. As the international chair of the IMBER (Integrated Marine Biogeochemistry and Ecosystem Research) project she was responsible for leading the development and implementation of a multidisciplinary Science Plan that addresses the interaction of marine biogeochemistry and ecosystems and their response to global change. This is a wide ranging project which includes experimental and observational studies and modelling of natural and social systems. In addition her involvement in a range of projects associated with the Global Ocean Observing System has given her a broad knowledge of marine observation systems, data management and the integration of observations and models. Most recently Julie has become Director of the Sustainable Seas National Science Challenge in New Zealand. This is a large interdisciplinary project developing frameworks, tools and approaches to support ecosystem based management of New Zealand’s marine resources to address the Challenge objective of “Enhancing the utilisation of our marine resources within environmental and biological constraints”
