Board Member, Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies and the University of Tasmania
Mr Terry Bailey is Executive Dean of the College of Sciences and Engineering at the University of Tasmania and a member of the ACCESS-NRI Board. At the ACCESS-NRI Board, Terry represents the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies and the University of Tasmania capturing our strong interest in climate, oceans and East Antarctica.
As a member of the ACCESS-NRI Board, Terry has a deep interest in the program’s national success as well as its linkage to other national facilities and other research programs.
As an Executive Dean Terry’s favourite aspect of his work is enabling and facilitating researchers to research and teaching staff to teach. In a complex and competitive environment enabling research, through funding and facilities, is critical to success – particularly as excellence and impact are being further refined. In this regard a favourite aspect of work for him seeing students, HDRs, ECRs and MCRs succeed.
Outside work, Terry enjoys walking. He thinks, one of the great things about working at UTas is the opportunity to live close to many great short, medium and long bushwalks – so most weekends he’ll be out walking. When not in Tasmania, he can be found on the south coast of NSW surfing or walking.
