Biography

Patti completed her undergraduate studies on Vancouver Island, Canada, and worked as a teacher at Nisgha (bicultural/bilingual) First Nation Elementary/Secondary School, B.C., Canada. She then completed a PhD at the University of Tasmania before joining CSIRO Division of Oceanography as a research scientist. Patti went on to undertake a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Université Pierre et Marie Curie, Paris VI, Observatoire Océanologique, Villefranche sur mer, France. She returned to UTAS as an ARC postdoctoral fellow, and is now an Associate Professor at IMAS.

Expertise

Patti's research interests cover aspects of biological oceanography, sea ice ecology, and zooplankton (krill) research. She has a special interest in marine oils and the use of signature lipids and fatty acid markers in marine ecosystems.

Collaboration

Patti currently leads a research project funded by ARC together with the krill fishing industry – Aker BioMarine, Norway. Other collaborators on this project include CSIRO, Australian Antarctic Division, Griffith University and the Norwegian Institute of Marine Research. Antarctic krill are an important species in the Southern Ocean supporting most of the Antarctic birds and mammals. A sustainable krill fishery is developing with krill products used in aquaculture and increasingly for human consumption. A new omega 3 krill oil industry has emerged and is rapidly expanding. The aim of this research is to predict the factors governing oil levels and the biochemical composition in krill which will help us understand growth, reproduction and recruitment. This research will also assess the possible effects of climate change on krill. Outcomes of this research will be used to manage the expanding krill fishery.

Patti is also involved in a recently funded ARC funded project with University of Sydney investigating the impact of climate change on larval energetics of molluscs on the southeast coast of Australia. Mollusc larvae show extreme sensitivity to Ocean Acidification, and impacts of other stressors such as temperature & salinity. Understanding the response of mollusc larvae to climate change will sustain ecologically & economically significant mollusc populations over this century.

Diet and range of killer whales in eastern Australian waters: insights from satellite tagging, signature fatty acid and stable isotope analysis (2017)$25,000
Description
This project will use innovative biochemical techniques (signature fatty acids and stable isotopes) to help us understand killer whales diet. Biochemical profiles of killer whales will be compared between Australian geographical regions to highlight potential variation in diet and foraging range. This information will enable us to classify killer whale populations into their various ecotypes (A, B, C, and D). Killer whales with in these ecotypes are reported to have distinctly different diets and foraging behaviours. This research will provide new insights into killer whale feeding ecology and movement patterns and we will further develop biochemical techniques for dietary studies specifically for whales. This project will provide governments and management agencies with the best available forecasts when evaluating conservation and resource management strategies involving Australian killer whale populations.

Description
This project will identify killer whale diet and foraging range within Australian waters and will provide new insights into killerwhale feeding ecology and movement patterns. This information will help determine regional patterns and highlight distinctinteractions between killer whales and their prey and will provide governments and management agencies with the bestavailable forecasts when evaluating conservation and resource management strategies involving Australian killer whalepopulations.

The impact of climate change on larval energetics of molluscs on the southeast coast of Australia (2014 - 2016)$593,000
Description
This project will investigate the impact of environmental change on larval energetics of molluscs on the southeast (SE) coast of Australia. The SE coast of Australia is a climate hotspot characterised by rising ocean temperatures, fluctuations in salinity and we expect in the near future ocean acidification (OA). Mollusc larvae show extreme sensitivity to OA, but the impacts of other stressors remains unknown. It is predicted that OA will reduce the capacity of larvae to cope with temperature and salinity, particularly when food supply is low and in populations which have had no previous exposure to OA. Understanding the response of mollusc larvae to environmental change will support ecologically and economically significant mollusc populations over this century.
