Teaching and supervisor opportunities
Gary is currently teaching the following units:
Gary has successfully supervised 37 PhD, 2 MSc and 26 Honours students to completion. "Two of my PhD students received UWA distinctions for their thesis. I find the role of supervisor very rewarding, and my continued collaboration with my graduated PhD students a major stimulus for my own research."
Previous topics he has supervised include:
- Understanding the role of upper-shelf reefs in coastal ecology: can they act as refugia for shallow marine sessile communities in an extreme climatic event?
- Social-ecological considerations for fishery improvement projects in the developing world: insights from case studies in Central America and the Caribbean.
- The seagrass rhizosphere. Understanding the bottom to manage the top.
- Unexplored aspects of the biotic filter to seedling recruitment in aquatic environments.
- Ningaloo mesophotic reefs: characterising the communities and assessing connectivity, encompassing AUV technology.
- Phosphorus biogeochemistry of Shark Bay.
- The role of ocean dynamics on seagrass seed dispersal and recruitment in Western Australia.
