Dr. Coupland is a marine ecologist currently working in the field of biosecurity. Her main research interests are in the marine and coastal ecology and plant-animal interactions. She also has a passion for urban sustainability, ecological restoration and conservation. Grey Coupland, Ph.D. has postdoctoral research experience focusing on the influence of marine subsidies on arid coastal systems, and seagrass habitat restoration.
Dr Coupland completed a PhD focusing on plant-animal interactions in tropical mangrove communities at Charles Darwin University. She holds a Bachelor of Science (Env.Sci.) degree with Honours in Marine Biology from the University of Western Australia, and has completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Sustainability and Climate Policy at Curtin University.
