Stacy Bierwagen is a researcher in ecology and conservation planning at James Cook University in Townsville, QLD. She recently completed her PhD examining the functional roles of reef sharks on the Great Barrier Reef, disentangling areas of uncertainty in diet and movement behaviour of common reef shark species. She also completed an MSc in tropical conservation biology and environmental science at the University of Hawaii. Her masters thesis defined foraging behaviour of bluespine unicornfish on invasive algae in a Hawaiian Marine Reserve. She has a broad range of research experience in coral reef and fish ecology from South America, Southeast Florida, Hawaii and Australia. She also has a passion for science communication and student representation serving as the co-chair for the education committee for the Australian Society for Fish Biology. She specialises in spatial analysis and quantitative statistical skills
