CMS would like to extend a huge congratulation to CMS member Dr Alistair Hobday (CSIRO) on becoming a new Australian Academy of Technological Science & Engineering (ATSE) Fellow, elected by the Fellowship on the basis of excellence, accomplishment, and fit with a modern and future-facing academy!

Overseeing a diverse research portfolio as the research director for Sustainable Marine Futures, Dr Alistair Hobday is a multi-disciplinary ‘big thinker’. He is a world-renowned marine scientist whose research focuses on building ocean resilience under climate change.

Alistair developed a classification system for marine heatwaves and led the first marine heatwave forecasts for Australia now being used to prepare for the upcoming summer. His climate adaptation innovations span coral reef conservation to shy albatross breeding enhancement.

Alistair has also made important advancements in sustainable fisheries management. His approach to assessing ecological risks from fishing is used in more than 15 countries worldwide and by international bodies such as the Marine Stewardship Council. He has also developed seasonal ocean forecasts for fisheries and aquaculture, already deployed in the bluefin tuna fishery.
