Dr. Ken Anthony

Dr. Anthony is Program Leader: Healthy and Resilient Great Barrier Reef at AIMS. His key interest is in understanding coral reef ecosystem resilience under climate and ocean change. Ken started his career in 1995 when he pursued a PhD at JCU in coral reef biology. He then evolved from a physiologist to a broad systems ecologist seeing problems through two lenses: marine science and environmental management. Ken joined AIMS in May 2011 and now works with a multidisciplinary program of more than 40 people spanning research areas from molecular biology and microbiology to ecosystem modelling at the scale of the entire Great Barrier Reef. The team works towards solving critical issues for the GBR and communicating those solutions to managers and stakeholders and the public.
