Peter Waldie


PhD candidate


James Cook University




Peter became interested in coral reef ecology when he realised it held the opportunity for perpetual tropical holidaying. He is a keen diver, spearo and fisherman. He completed his BMarSt (Honours) at The University of Queensland in 2009, investigating the role of cleaner wrasse on client fish assemblages at Lizard Island. Since then he has endeavoured to spend as much time as possible in the water. In 2012, Peter commenced his PhD candidature under the supervision of Glenn Almany, Josh Cinner, Richard Hamilton and John Pandolfi. His work is focused on commercially important grouper spawning aggregations in Papua New Guinea – investigating relevant biological spatial scales for management (e.g. larval dispersal and home range). He is particularly interested in integrating contemporary management programs into existing customary marine tenure systems.
