Dr Symon Dworjanyn is currently Professor at the National marine Science Centre.
Symon works in the fields of marine ecology and sustainable aquaculture, applying the culturing skills developed in aquaculture research to explore and apply ecological theory to advance the development of sustainable aquaculture practices.
Dr Symon Dworjanyn's current research focus is the effect of ocean acidification and warming on marine invertebrates. In this research Symon uses ecological and evolutionary theory to predict the future impacts of marine climate change on marine invertebrates, and to identify adaptation and mitigation strategies to limit ecosystem impacts. In the area of aquaculture he focuses on sustainable sea urchin and seaweed culture. Symon's other research interests include seaweed and marine invertebrate chemical ecology and desert trophic ecology.
