Philip Boyd is Professor of Marine Biogeochemistry at the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania. Philip's in-depth research interests range from ecology to biogeochemistry and include the joint development of decision support tools (such as for climate change, geoengineering) with economists and policy analysts. He has helped to develop (with these collaborators) and structure interactive workshops, for a range of policy makers, to introduce and employ the decision-making tools to assist with implementation of uptake of this science.

Biography

Philip commenced his career as a postdoctoral researcher at Plymouth Marine Laboratory (UK) where he was a part of the seminal Joint Global Ocean Flux Study (JGOFS). This led to a four year postdoctoral position at the School of Oceanography (University of British Columbia, Canada), followed by an appointment as a Phytoplankton Ecologist with the National Institute of Water and Atmosphere (NIWA, New Zealand). In New Zealand, he established the NIWA Centre for Chemical and Physical Oceanography – based at the Chemistry Department, University of Otago, Dunedin.  In 2013, he took up his current appointment as a Professor of Marine Biogeochemistry at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS), University of Tasmania.

Research Themes

Over the last two decades Philip's research has been characterised by international transdisciplinary research across the broad themes of ocean biogeochemistry, biological oceanography, phytoplankton processes, and open ocean ecosystems. Each of these themes comprises many disciplines – for example marine chemistry, satellite oceanography, carbon sequestration. His research trajectory has been further broadened by the need to better understand the influence of oceanic processes on Earth's climate (and vice-versa).  For example can certain oceanic processes – such as ocean's biological carbon pump – be strengthened to 'geoengineer' the climate to mitigate rising carbon dioxide emissions?  Philip has also linked this research into policy by examining the wider societal ramifications of geoengineering. A further example of the breadth of this research is his current investigations into how climate change is altering marine productivity and hence the flows of energy to foodwebs. Nationally, Philip is currently a theme leader (Under-ice and open water foodwebs) in the ARC-funded Antarctic Gateway, and a project leader (Biological responses to environmental change) in the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems (ACE) CRC. Philip's research has formed a coherent body of ground-breaking transformative studies over two decades in ocean sciences.

Administrative expertise

Philip's career has featured a range of highly successful leadership roles working with large transdisciplinary teams from multiple institutes than span national and international communities.  His research has been characterised by field-leading transdisciplinary studies many of which have had an explicit outreach component. The Coasts and Oceans centre in New Zealand that Philip successfully ran for almost a decade had over 40 staff, annual workshops and reviews, and an annual budget of >3 million $ NZ.

Philip has also led more than 20 international scientific voyages constituting teams of around 30 scientists per voyage. Philip's leadership has spanned the preparation of science plans, securing the multi-million dollar funding for each expedition, assembling integrated teams of leading national and international participants, promoting training and mentorship, and successfully executing the voyage plan and subsequent co-ordination of publications.

Collaboration

Philip's research is characterised by internationally-recognised, innovative and influential studies, driven by collaborative networks he has established with global field leaders across a wide range of disciplines (e.g., Doney, H index 71; Siegel, H = 59; Jickells, H =51, all WOS). His research has formed a coherent body of ground-breaking transformative studies over two decades in ocean sciences. Evidence of this pioneering research comes from sustained publication in Nature (6), Science (7), Nature Geosciences (5), Nature Climate Change (2) and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (2). The high citation rate (up to 1200, June 2015) of many of these studies, largely contributed  to the group Boyd led at University of Otago being ranked #1 of the 30 leading oceanographic research centres globally, over the decade 2000 to 2010). 

Over the last five years, Philip has further expanded his collaborative network through development of partnerships with Gattuso (H index 54 (WOS), Nice), Riebesell (H index 45 (WOS), Kiel), Arrigo (H index 52 (WOS), Stanford). In October 2015, he will host Riebesell as a visiting Professor at IMAS, thus fostering the quality research environment within the University of Tasmania. He has also co-hosted two workshops, convened at the University of Tasmania, on Ocean Acidification and on Microbial Biogeochemistry. His late 2014 visit to the Tropical Ocean Simulator at AIMS (Australian Institute of Marine Science) led to him initiating an expertise exchange programme in experimental manipulation experiments with researchers at AIMS (Uthicke, Llewellyn), University of Sydney (Byrne) and The Australian National University (ANU, Eggins).

Projects

Surface and subsurface subantarctic Biogeochemistry of Carbon and Iron, Southern Ocean Time Series site (2019)$0
Description
Its central aim is to develop a state-of-the art understanding of the interlinked biogeochemical cycles of iron and carbon in the Southern Ocean to better understanding how seasonal and interannual variability in Fe supply and recycling influences Southern Ocean productivity, nutrient remineralisation, and the export of carbon into the oceans interior.

Geoengineering the Southern Ocean? A transdisciplinary assessment. (2016 - 2021)$2,496,651
Description
The project aims to deliver a comprehensive evaluation of the feasibility of boosting carbon dioxide removal bySouthern Ocean microbes, through geoengineering, to offset climate change. It will transcend the currentinternational impasse preventing research on this topic through the use of proxies for geoengineering studies, onrelevant scales, from prior polar experiments. With the polar datasets as a platform, the project will combineexperiments and modelling to quantify carbon dioxide removal, and critically assess the economic feasibility andside effects of geoengineering. It promises to deliver a framework for governance of future research and informnational/international policy on using geoengineering to mitigate climate change.

Natural iron fertilisation of oceans around Australia: linking terrestrial dust and bushfires to marine biogeochemistry (2016 - 2017)$0
Description
The application will support research to quantify the importance of iron-rich aerosols from Australia for marine biogeochemistry and ocean ecosystem health. The project will sample and conduct experiments on atmospheric particles containing terrestrial dust and bushfire smoke that are transported from Australia to its surrounding oceans. The application supports the training and research of two postgraduate students from IMAS-UTAS. The outcomes will provide a scientific basis for managing the complex role of iron in sustaining marine ecosystem biodiversity and for informing government policy on ocean fertilisation as a carbon mitigation strategy.

Assessment of habitats, productivity and food webs on the Kerguelen Axis in the Indian Sector of the Southern Ocean (2015)$0
Description
The Southern Ocean is one of the most rapidly changing environments on earth. Australia seeks to sustain marine resources of high fisheries and conservation value that are dependent on the productive ecosystems of the Kerguelen Axis (including Australias Territory of Heard Island and McDonald Islands south to the Antarctic continent). The Kerguelen Axis has never been surveyed as a single region to determine the critical relationships between environmental and biogeochemical drivers responsible for the transition between the northern copepod-fish dominated foodweb to the southern krill-based foodweb. This knowledge is essential for ecosystem-based management of fisheries, as well as conservation of whale populations and marine biodiversity. The results will be important for assessing likely responses to change in the ecosystem (from climate or fisheries) as well as change in the global oceans and carbon cycle, which are fundamental to the Earths response to climate change
