Peter Macreadie is an Associate Professor of Marine Science at Deakin University, and the Director of Deakin’s award-winning Blue Carbon Lab.

His research focuses on the ability of natural ecosystems to capture and store carbon. For 10 years, Peter and his team have been studying on the role that coastal wetlands – known as ‘blue carbon’ ecosystems – play in global carbon drawdown.

Peter has published >130 peer-reviewed papers and has been awarded fellowships from the Australian Research Council; the Banksia Environmental Foundation; Veski; the American Australian Association; the AMP Foundation; and the Australian Museum. He currently sits on the Victorian Coastal Council, the Australian Government’s Blue Carbon Working Group, and is Chair of the Independent Scientific Advisory Board for the National Decommissioning Research Initiative.


Peter’s

Perspective

“Blue Carbon represents a powerful weapon in the fight against climate change, and, ironically, it capitalises on the same natural process that created fossil fuels in the first place.”
