Dr Levente Bodrossy: world leader of microbial ecology and microarrays
Dr Lev Bodrossy is a marine microbiologist who is at the cutting edge of scientific exploration and discovery in the field of identifying and differentiating the micro-organisms that live in our soils, waterways and oceans. His work is leading the way using the latest gene technology to unravel the complex systems that are crucial to sustaining these diverse environments.
Mr Damian Thomson’s core expertise lies in studying benthic ecology and the processes influencing the life history of organisms living on or near the sea floor.
The CSIRO Network Theory Working Group is applying this area of Complex Systems Science to a number of real-world social, ecological and economic issues.
The CSIRO agent-based modelling working group (CABM) is applying this area of complex systems science to a number of real-world social, ecological and economic issues.
