Craig E. Franklin

Conservation Physiology Convenor and SEB Vice-President

Craig has been an active member of the SEB for 25 years. He was awarded the President’s Medal in 1998 and is currently the SEB Vice-President. Craig is also the convenor of the Conservation Physiology interest group which he initiated in 2011.

Craig is a Professor in Zoology, the Deputy Head of the School of Biological Sciences and the Executive Director of Research Ethics at the University of Queensland (UQ). In addition to leading the Franklin Eco-lab at UQ, Craig is Director of Research for the Steve Irwin Wildlife Reserve. He is also an editor for the Journal of Experimental Biology and associate editor for the SEB/OUP journal, Conservation Physiology.

Originally from New Zealand, Craig was awarded his PhD from the University of Canterbury, and then held postdoctoral research positions at Massey University, UQ and the University of St Andrews before starting his teaching and research position at UQ in 1995.
The focus of Craig’s research programme is in understanding the responses of organisms to changing environmental conditions including assessing and predicting the impact of human-induced environmental change. A major thrust of this research is within the emerging field of conservation physiology. His research combines lab-based experimental studies with fieldwork, and he takes an integrative approach that uses ecological, behavioural, physiological and genomic methodologies. In the field his lab group uses remote sensing technology (acoustic and satellite telemetry, archival tags) to investigate the movement patterns, behaviours and physiology of animals in relation to environmental conditions.
