Biography

Biography summary

Prof Gerry Quinn is Head of the Warrnambool Campus and Chair in Marine Biology. He has extensive research experience in coastal marine ecology, freshwater ecosystems and the effects of flow change on rivers and wetlands. He has co-authored two books on experimental design and data analysis and monitoring human impacts in aquatic environments. Recent research has been on the effects of humans on the condition of estuaries and developing models for linking coastal environments to nearby land and catchment processes. He has taught a range of units in marine and freshwater ecology and biostatistics and has regularly taught the postgraduate course in Experimental Design and Data Analysis for Marine Scientists at the University of Gothenburg.
