Augustine Crosbie


PhD candidate


B.Sc. (Honours) Marine Biology First Class, James Cook University (2017)


James Cook University




Bio:

Originally from the outskirts of Melbourne, Australia. Augustine became interested in the marine environment during his teenage years while camping/free-diving with family and friends along Victorias southern cost. After traveling aboard and discovering the delights of diving in warmer waters, he decided to return to Australia to pursue a career in Marine Biology. He has been at JCU since 2013 and completed a BSc in Marine Biology in 2016 and an Honours in 2017, under the supervision of Andrew Baird, Tom Bridge and Geoff Jones. His honours examined how coral and fish taxa responded to the 2016 bleaching event along an extended depth gradient in the clear waters on Osprey Reef, in the Coral Sea. In 2019 he started his PhD candidature under the supervision of Andrew Baird and Tom Bridge. Augustine’s research is now building on his earlier honours research to explore the environmental drivers behind patterns of coral species richness across depth gradients on coral reefs.

Project Title:

Integrating physiological and environmental drivers of depth zonation patterns on coral reefs
