Associate Professor Jian-Xin Zhao is Principal Research Fellow in geochemistry at the Centre for Microscopy and Microanalysis, University of Queensland. His work focuses on palaeoclimate/palaeoenvironmental reconstruction and archaeological/palaeocological studies based on coral reefs at sea and karst cave deposits on land. Dating methods such as mass spectrometry U-series developed in his University of Queensland (UQ) lab, have been applied to dating of coral reefs in the Great Barrier Reef, Moreton Bay, and coastal Western Australia.

Professor Pandolfi is Chief Investigator and palaeoecologist at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, University of Queensland.
