ANNANDALE, QLD, AUSTRALIA, May 2, 2014, Daniel M. Alongi, Senior Principal Research Scientist of the Australian Institute of Marine Science, has been recognized by Worldwide Branding for showing dedication, leadership and excellence in his profession.

With has 31 years of scientific experience, Mr. Alongi has demonstrated expertise in marine biogeochemistry, the cycle of elements in sea water and on sea bed. His duties in his current role of 12 years, are managing two teams in carbon biogeochemistry and ocean acidification, conducting research on marine and tropical coastal ecosystems, with particular emphasis on mangrove and coral reef environments. His research includes understanding the structure and function of soft-bottom benthic ecosystems, especially microbial carbon and nitrogen cycling.

Mr. Alongi is also attending monthly research meetings with team leaders, publishing articles and technical papers in international journals (over 175 science and technical papers in international journals), and acquiring funds for science programs. In the future, he would like to write a science textbook, build relationships with researchers, and expand the work in countries that suffer from the same environmental issues.

Successful because of his hard work and persistence, Mr. Alongi grew up in New York City, and always had a fascination with the ocean and science. So he pursued it in his education, starting with a Bachelor of Science in biology from the City College of New York, then a master’s degree in marine sciences from the College of William and Mary, and finally, a Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Georgia.

Mr. Alongi also maintains affiliations with numerous industry-related associations: the American Geophysical Union, the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography, the Ecological Society of America, the International Society for Reef Studies, the International Society for Mangrove Ecosystems, the International Society for Coral Reef Systems, the American Society of Science in Limnology and Oceanography, and the International Union for the Conservation of Nature, where he serves on the Species Survival Commission. He has spent time working for the Intergovernment Panel for Climate Change.

In recognition of all his achievements, Mr. Alongi was recently inducted into Worldwide Branding.
