Janet Grieve (a.k.a. Bradford-Grieve) has more than 40 years of experience as a researcher. She has a PhD from the University of Canterbury and a NZIM Diploma of Management from Wellington Polytechnic. She has combined two research threads throughout her career: the New Zealand taxonomy and phylogeny of planktonic copepod Crustaceans and integrative work on marine ecosystem functioning. This has led to particular insights into the nature of the offshore New Zealand and Ross Sea marine environment and the impact that environmental variability has on the exploitation of renewable marine resources. She was a member of the Task Force that reviewed the fisheries legislation in the early 1990s and was on the first FRST National Resources and Environment Committee. She is a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand and has recently retired from the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research where she is now an emeritus researcher.
She has been associated with NZAS for a number of years having been president and treasurer and presently takes meeting minutes and distributes NZ Science Review. She is on the Conference Organising Committee 2010
