Tim Glasby is a Senior Research Scientist in the Aquatic Ecosystems Unit of NSW DPI, based at the Port Stephens Fisheries Centre. He is a marine ecologist with over 15 years experience working in temperate marine systems. Tim joined NSW DPI in 2002 after working as an academic and an environmental consultant.
Tim coordinates research on the impacts and control of marine pests and also works on projects investigating anthropogenic impacts on marine biodiversity. He also co-supervises Honours and PhD students.
