Biography's Source:

Ian Irvine was born in Bathurst in 1950 and educated at Chevalier College and the University of Sydney, where he earned a Ph.D. in marine science in 1981. He has worked in a variety of jobs, including a sweeper in a cement factory, a research assistant in microbiology, and an environmental project manager. In the early 1980s he led several disastrous expeditions to Sumatra, which gave him many ideas for his books. He has spent too much of his life diving on filthy harbor bottoms investigating pollution.

In 1986 Irvine set up his own consulting firm, carrying out environmental studies for clients in Australia and overseas. He has worked in many countries in the Asia-Pacific region. An expert in marine pollution, he has developed some of Australia's national environmental guidelines.

Ian Irvine is married and lives in the mountains of northern New South Wales.
