John Tibby' s current research focuses on the history of wetlands on North Stradbroke Island (NSI), south-east Queensland and the history of the Lower Murray River lakes, South Australia.
The NSI project is supported by an ARC Linkage grant (LP0990124) with the Queensland Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts and Consolidated Rutile Limited as partners. Drs Jon Marshall and Glenn McGregor are the DSITIA partner investigators. Dr Patrick Moss (University of Queensland), Dr Galen Halverson (McGill University) and Dr Jennie Fluin (Geology and Geophysics, Adelaide) are the other university investigators. Dr Cameron Barr is the postdoctoral fellow on the project. Other collaborators include Dr Andrew Henderson (University of Newcastle, UK) and Professor Melanie Leng (Chair of Isotope Geosciences, Department of Geology, University of Leicester).
The lower Murray project is supported by an ARC Linkage grant (LP100100215) awarded to Dr Jennie Fluin and John Tibby, with the Department of Environment and Heritage and The South Australian Murray Darling Basin Natural Resource Management Board as partners. Ms Deborah Haynes (Earth and Environmental Science) works on the project.
Other ongoing projects include investigation of rates of sedimentation in waterholes in the Moonie River (south-west Queensland) and the environmental history of Burdekin River wetlands. These projects are funded by, and in collaboration with Queensland's Department of Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts
John undertook his PhD at Monash University developing a diatom-based model for inferring the history of nutrient levels (total phosphorus) in water storage reservoirs (Tibby 2004). He has researched and lectured in the UK at Loughborough University and University College London (Environmental Change Research Centre). He was a research associate for Prof Peter Kershaw (Monash) on the environmental history of the Maritime Continent and for Dr Peter Gell (Adelaide) and Dr Peter Wallbrink (CSIRO Land and Water) on the sources and affect of nutrient pollution in the upper Torrens River catchment (SA).
From 2005-2007 he was an Australian Postdoctoral Fellow researching the history of Eastern Australian coastal lakes (Australian Research Council Discovery Project DP0558887 "European impact on Eastern Australian coastal lakes: understanding pre-impact conditions and post-settlement modification").
