Current activities

Developing optimal survey designs for an integrated suite of monitoring methods (such as AUV, ROV and BRUVs) at three locations: the shelf of the Flinders CMR in the South East IMCRA transition bioregion, the coral/kelp KEF to the east of the Houtman-Abrolhos islands and the east-coast shelf KEF adjacent to the Solitary Islands marine reserve.


Emma Lawrence is an environmental statistician with CSIRO Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics (CMIS) in Brisbane, Australia. The focus of her work is primarily on the application of statistical techniques in the marine domain. Some of Emma’s recent projects include the design and analysis of monitoring programs to determine the effectiveness of new green zones in Moreton Bay (QLD) and predicting marine biodiversity using existing monitoring and environmental data. Prior to joining CSIRO Emma worked at the then Bureau of Rural Sciences (Australian Government Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) where she was involved in developing a national sampling strategy for monitroing invasive marine species at high-risk locations around Australia.
