Bronwyn Gillanders is a Professor at the University of Adelaide and runs the Gillanders Aquatic Ecology Lab, which includes postdoctoral researchers, PhD and Honours research students and Undergraduate students gaining research experience. Her group works on freshwater, estuarine and marine systems focusing on fish and fisheries issues. This research uses the calcified structures of aquatic organisms as innovative tools to understand past environments and biological processes, such as age, growth and movement patterns. Her broader interests include integrated marine management and understanding cumulative environmental impacts. She completed her BSc at the University of Canterbury, her MSc in Marine Science at the University of Otago and a PhD in Biological Sciences from the University of Sydney. Dr Gillanders has worked at NSW Fisheries (1996-1997) and held several ARC postdoctoral fellowships at the Universities of Sydney (1997-2000) and Adelaide (2001-2006; 2010-2014). She is currently Deputy Director of the Environment Institute, Director of the Marine Biology Program within the Environment Institute and Associate Head Research in the School of Biological Sciences. She is a past president of the Australian Society for Fish Biology.
