Guy Marion

PhD Graduate

University of Queensland

Guy grew up moving all over the world (Bahrain, Bangkok, Tokyo, Sydney, New York, Dallas, Hong Kong), but moved to Brisbane in 2003 from the San Francisco Bay area, California.
Guy completed his Ph.D at UQ with Ove Hoegh-Guldberg (UQ) and Malcolm McCulloch (ANU). His research focused on the extraction and analysis of nitrogen isotopes (δ15N) preserved in long coral cores to trace river-born signals of fertilizers and urban pollutants entering the GBR lagoon since European-arrival (1860). Guy earned a B.S. (hons) at Stanford University (2002), and was a recipient of the 2004 International Society for Reef Studies prize. In his spare time, Guy loves surfing, diving, visiting friends.
