Research interests

Alex is a marine biologist and oceanographic engineer by training, with multi-disciplinary research interests at the interface between marine ecology and oceanography. He received Honours degrees in both Science and Engineering (Marine Biology and Ocean Systems Engineering) and a Ph.D. (Oceanography and Marine Ecology) from The University of Western Australia. As a Fulbright Scholar and Postdoc at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, San Diego, and as a Research Fellow in the Atmosphere and Ocean Research Institute at The University of Tokyo, Dr Wyatt’s novel integration of oceanography, isotope ecology and engineering has begun to shed new light on the biogeochemical function, diet shifts, and foraging specialisations of globally threatened marine ecosystems and species.
