Dr Ana Bugnot is an expert on the effects of human impacts in the marine environment and designs strategies to increase ecosystem health in urbanized coasts. Using state-of-the-art technologies, she is unraveling the nature and magnitude of human impacts and working with industry and environmental managers to develop solutions.

She has a Ph.D. from the University of Sydney (2014) investigating the ecological impacts of invasive species in urban estuaries. The highly-applied focus of this project awaken her interest in producing information that can directly inform the management of human impacts in marine habitats.Skills in impact assessment, quantitative ecology and advanced statistics developed during this time led to her position as a Research Associate at the Applied Marine and Estuarine Ecology Group in the University of New South Wales. She is unraveling the nature and magnitude of human impacts using an array of techniques (in-situ monitoring, remote sensing, data management), and developing mitigation strategies to increase ecosystem health using experiments (field and laboratory) and meta-analyses and working with industry and environmental managers to implement those solutions.

She has been a Doctoral Fellow and collaborator at the Sydney Institute of Marine Science (since 2010), a councilor for the Australian Marine Science Association (since 2011) and has taught on the CSIRO Scientists and Mathematicians in Schools program (since 2016).
