Prof. Andy Revill from CSIRO, Australia visited YIC for academic exchanges

On 11th May, 2018, Prof. Andy Revill from CSIRO, Australia gave splendid lectures titled “Trophic interactions of a deep-sea (200-3,000 m) benthic fauna identified from compound specific stable isotope analysis of amino acids”, respectively. In this lecture, the progresses in the field of “using compound specific stable isotopes analysis of amino acids as a tool for understanding marine biogeochemical processes and ecological interactions” were demonstrated. Moreover, the application in the field of “using compound specific stable isotopes analysis of lipids” were also discussed.

Prof. Andy Revill has 15 years’experience in Organic biogeochemistry primarily focusing on understanding the sources and fate of carbon and nitrogen in estuaries using a variety of lipid marker and stable isotope techniques, particularly the combination of both and has been involved with major research projects investigating the Huon river estuary (TAS), Fitzroy river estuary (Qld), the Lower Ord river (WA) and the Kimberley. He is actively supervising biogeochemistry PhD students and has collaborative projects with researchers at several universities and other research institutions. Current projects include using compound specific nitrogen isotopes of amino acids to investigate diet shifts in marine ecosystems due to climate change and to model nitrogen turnover in marine predators. He is using compound specific isotopes of various biomarkers to distinguish carbon and nitrogen sources in estuaries and to determine the importance of these in estuarine and coastal food webs.
