Following on from his 2016 Australian Laureate Fellowship, Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) scientist Professor Philip Boyd has been awarded the prestigious G. Evelyn Hutchinson Award by the US-based Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO).

In announcing the award, ASLO recognised Professor Boyd “for his pioneering work on the complex interactions of biogeochemistry, multiple drivers of climate change, and their impacts on ocean planktonic ecosystems.”

IMAS Executive Director, Professor Richard Coleman, congratulated Professor Boyd and said the Hutchinson Award was further recognition of his outstanding research achievements.

“It’s an honour to receive the Hutchinson Award, which has been previously presented to many of my heroes in the ocean science community overseas, and I thank my colleagues at ASLO,” Professor Boyd said.
