Biography

Thomas holds a joint appointment between CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research and the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies at the University of Tasmania. His main research interests are marine biogeochemistry, chemical oceanography and chemical-ecological interactions.

He is internationally recognised for his major role in advancing understanding of oceanic biogeochemical cycles and has developed new ways to apply stable isotopes as tracers of nutrient transformations and transfers in the marine environment. Thomas’ research helps determine the relationships between supply of the micro-nutrient iron, primary production, and biological carbon sequestration.

Since 2009 Thomas  has been director of the CSIRO-UTAS Quantitative Marine Science PhD program and since 2007 leader of the NCRIS IMOS Southern Ocean Time Series Facility.
