Dr Bowie is a senior research scientist with ACE’s Carbon Program and has a PhD in Chemical Oceanography. His research interests include chemical oceanography, marine biogeochemistry, trace elements and isotopes, ocean iron fertilisation and atmospheric dust deposition. He leads a multi-disciplinary program of Southern Ocean carbon cycle research focussing on the vital role trace elements (such as iron) play in ocean ecosystem productivity and the sequestering of carbon in the deep sea. In 2010 Dr Bowie was invited to join Scientific Steering Committee for the international program GEOTRACES: ‘An International Study of Marine Biogeochemical Cycles of Trace Elements and their Isotopes’, he also received the Royal Society-Australian Academy of Science “Exceptional Young Researcher” Award and University of Tasmania “Rising Star Award”.
