Research Biography

Professor Sabine Dittmann is a nationally and internationally renowned expert on coastal ecosystem ecology with recognised leadership in marine sciences through election to presidency of peak professional association and appointment to key committees advancing science policy.

Her expertise in coastal ecosystem ecology has led to research in various temperate and tropical environments of the world. She is working closely at the interface between research and environmental management, through translation of research outcomes into scientific advice to achieve ecosystem health and conservation outcomes. This includes, for example, knowledge transfer for environmental water management in hypersaline estuaries and lagoons, blue carbon offset opportunities through coastal restoration, invasive species management, and marine park planning and evaluation.

Professor Dittmann has been elected national president of the Australian Marine Sciences Association (AMSA), and represented AMSA at the National Marine Science Committee from 2010 to 2016. She is currently President of the Royal Society of South Australia. In 2013 she was appointed by the Australian Academy of Science to the National Committee for Ecology, Evolution and Conservation. She held ministerial appointments for the Marine Parks Council of South Australia, the Expert Scientific Panel for the review of the Commonwealth Marine Reserves, and was elected in 2019 to the new Australian Antarctic Science Council.
