Moninya Roughan

I strive to create an inclusive work environment for my team that represents the diversity found in our society. My goal is to make a fundamental contribution to oceanography in Australasia and internationally. To do this, I support my team to be the best that they can be while solving exciting problems and undertaking industry relevant research.

Presently I lead a vibrant team of coastal and regional oceanographers. We investigate the complex dynamical processes occurring on the continental shelf of SE Australia through a combination of observations and numerical modelling. I co-lead the NSW node of Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System, and I lead the coastal moorings radar and glider program within the state of NSW. I supervise Phd Students, postdocs and marine technicians all of whom are striving to understand the challenging and complex oceanic environment.
