About Me

Guy joined the School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences in mid-2019 as a senior lecturer with research specialties in marine and freshwater ecology, conservation physiology, environmental impact, aquaculture production, and post-harvest technology.

Guy's current research is focusing on how aquatic organisms will respond to unprecedented environmental change. Of particular interest are increases in temperature and shortages in oxygen availability. This work also involves determining whether physiological attributes may differ between sub-populations of the same species.

He has a diverse research portfolio that is a by-product of simple curiosity and a desire to develop applied solutions to problems.

If you are interested in post-graduate opportunities (Honours, Masters, and PhD) please feel free to contact Guy, in the first instance via email (a.carton@cqu.edu.au) to identify common interests, themes and potential projects.
