Marine Biologist

NIWA

Dr Leigh Tait focuses on applying novel tools to enhance understanding of complex ecological systems. He combines ecological and physiological knowledge of organism’s tolerance and responses to biotic and abiotic factors to determine the drivers and mechanisms of change in marine ecosystems.

In the Antarctic Science Platform, Leigh will map coastal marine ecosystems using remote sensing and field measurements, to identify environmental stressors and impacts on ecosystem function.
