Head of School

Professor Marnie Campbell

Professor Marnie Campbell is passionate about conserving our marine, estuarine, and coastal environments. She is particularly interested in restoring ecosystems, managing marine introduced species (biosecurity), risk assessment and perceptions, and the social drivers that lead to impacts in our ecosystems.

Professor Campbell’s career maintains a balance between active science research and scholarship at the interface of environmental management, with the aim of translating science into effective policy and determining how policy directs science. A crucial component of this is helping to guide and create scientists, environmental leaders and decision-makers of the future via innovative and life-long education opportunities.

Professor Campbell is motivated by working with researchers and students to improve how “we” listen, and address stakeholder needs, to provide positive impacts.
