Ecological Statistician

Dr Rowan Trebilco

Dr Trebilco’s research examines the processes that shape marine communities and ecosystems at scales ranging from local assemblages to global biomes, with the goal of informing conservation and management. He has a long-standing interest and engagement in the interface between ecological research, decision-making and environmental stewardship. While Dr Trebilco’s work has a quantitative focus, its grounded by several years of fieldwork above and below temperate, tropical, and southern oceans.

Dr Trebilco joined the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre at the end of 2014 as an ecological statistician, after being awarded his PhD in Biology at Simon Fraser University in Canada. He completed an MSc. in Biodiversity Conservation and Management as a Rhodes Scholar at the University of Oxford in 2007, and before that, worked as a Seabird Biologist for the Tasmanian state government.

Current Research

In the CRC, Dr Trebilco’s focus has been on engaging with national and international collaborators to develop models, methods and analyses to facilitate assessment of Southern Ocean ecosystem status and trends, and to advance fundamental understanding of ecosystem structure and function. This work is primarily directed toward project R2.3, and also has strong links with project R2.2.
