Chris Cvitanovic

Dr Chris Cvitanovic is an interdisciplinary Research Fellow in the Centre for Marine Socioecology and Faculty of Law at the University of Tasmania, Australia.  Chris’ research focuses on improving knowledge exchange among scientists and decision-makers to facilitate evidenced based decision-making, with a focus on marine contexts.  In doing so Chris draws on almost ten years of experience working at the interface of science and policy for the Australian Government Department of Environment, including almost five years in Marine Park management.  Previously Chris' research has also focused on understanding the mechanisms underpinning the resilience of coral reef systems, primarily herbivory and water quality.
