Chris Brown

Chris Brown

The instigator of seascapemodels.org. Research Fellow at Australian Rivers Institute. Chris is currently working on a Discovery Early Career Research Fellowship awarded by the Australian Research Council to uncover how habitat change is influencing the sustainability of fisheries.

Dale Bryan-Brown


A PhD candidate at the Australian Rivers Institute, Dale is studying role of connectivity in the conservation of marine organisms. Dale's background is in genetic methods for studying connectivity. He is now applying genetic methods to quantify connectivity in an under-studied marine habitat - mangrove forests.

Tessie Liddell

Tessie Liddell

A PhD candidate at Griffith University's College of Art, Tessie is an animation artist. She is studying how animation can be used to communicate the impacts of land-use change on riverine and marine ecosystems. She is particularly interested in turning science into a narrative that will resonate with people outside of a scientific audience. You can view some of her works here.

Andrew Broadley

Andrew Broadley

Andrew is currently working as a research assistant reviewing associations between fished species and their habitats as part of Chris' ARC project.

Lauren Armstrong

Lauren Armstrong

Lauren is doing her honours in 2017 on methods to monitor the status of fish stocks using recreational catch surveys. She is working with QLD fisheries to complete her honours project.


Hsien-Yung Lin


Hsien completed his PhD with the Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions in 2017. Hsien-Yung studied the conservation of diadromous fish, using species distribution modeling, population dynamics modeling and conservation planning tools. He will soon be beginning a post-doc in the U.S.

Viv Tulloch

Viv Tulloch

A PhD candidate at the Centre of Excellence for Environmental Decisions, Viv is interested in planning for the impacts of run-off to marine ecosystems.
