About the Speaker
Dr Bernard Bowen spent most of his working life as a marine scientist and then as an administrator as Director of the Department of Fisheries and Wildlife in Western Australia. One of his main areas of interest was the population dynamics of the western rock lobster and the management of the fishery. Following his retirement in 1991, he was appointed a Director of the Australian Fisheries Management Authority, a position he held until 1994.
Bernard was appointed Deputy Chair of the WA Environmental Protection Authority in 1994, and then in 1997 he was appointed Chair of the Authority. During that time he had a significant influence on the protection of the State’s environment and the development of environmental policy.
Following his retirement from the EPA in 2003, Bernard has played a major role in the establishment of two research institutes, firstly, the WA Marine Science Institution (WAMSI) and more recently the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR). He was the Foundation Chair of the WAMSI Board and is now the Foundation Chair of the ICRAR Board.
He has been awarded an Order of Australia Award, and he is a Fellow of the Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering.
