Biographical details

Dr Ana Bugnot completed her Ph.D. in 2014 at the University of Sydney studying the ecological impacts of invasive species in urban estuaries. Skills in impact assessment, quantitative ecology and advanced statistics developed during this time led to her position as a Research Fellow at the Applied Marine and Estuarine Ecology Group in the University of New South Wales, where she studied the human impacts in the marine environment and designed strategies for the ecological enhancement of urbanized coasts. The highly-applied focus of these projects awaken her interest in producing information that can directly inform the management of human impacts in marine habitats. Using state-of-the-art technologies, Ana’s research focusses on unraveling the nature and magnitude of these impacts and works with industry and environmental managers to develop solutions. In 2018, Ana started a joint Research Fellowship at the University of Sydney and Sydney Institute of Marine Science, where she is the Program Manager of the Sydney Harbour Research Program and leads the development of an oyster restoration program in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy, DPI Fisheries and OEH NSW. Ana has good record of attracting research funding and publishing in ISI journals.She has made major contributions to the marine ecological community in New South Wales. She has been a Doctoral Fellow and collaborator at the Sydney Institute of Marine Science (since 2010) and a Councilor for the Australian Marine Science Association (since 2011).
