My research applies biogeochemical and microbiological techniques to improve the fundamental understanding of carbon cycling and microbial ecology in coastal and freshwater ecosystems in the context of global climate change and ecosystem health and restoration.

My talk will highlight some of the research projects from the past few years in the CIE, including various studies on the microbes associated with seagrasses, the global initiative TeaComposition H2O, and upcoming projects on wetland restoration.


After receiving her Master’s degree in the US on seagrass disease, Stacey moved to Sydney to complete her PhD on seagrass (blue) carbon cycling. In 2015, she moved to Deakin and Blue Carbon Lab where she has worked on a diverse range of projects, including carbon cycling coastal and freshwater wetlands, microbiomes, and seagrass disease.

As an ARC DECRA Fellow, Stacey is using decomposition and microbiomes to investigate the drivers of soil function in natural and restored wetlands around the world.

As a courtesy, we request that when connecting to the seminar that you mute your microphone unless you are required to speak, this would ensure that the sound from the speaker to the audience is not disrupted by feedback from your microphone.

Thanking you in advance!
