Dr. Randall Lee is a coastal oceanographer with over 25 years experience in multi-disciplinary studies within Australia, New Zealand and Canada. Randall has a Doctorate of Philosophy and Master of Science in oceanography, and a Bachelor of Science in hydrology and meteorology. Through association with marine environment issues engaged by government and university partners, Randall’s area of expertise have focussed on the coastal boundary layer where anthropogenic impacts and effects of climate change are often cited. This has included the development of novel tracing techniques including water mass and acoustic tracking to resolve anomalous impact features, coupling bio-physical models to assess system dynamics, and motivating engagement with nationally funded programs (such as the Integrated Marine Observing System) to develop opportunistic oceanographic programs that sustain ocean climate observations. Randall is currently the Principal Marine Scientist at the Environment Protection Authority in Victoria, Australia.
