Research Interests

As leader of the Oceanography Group, I have an interest in oceanographic research and monitoring in Scottish waters.  Much of this is focused on understanding the processes that drive the circulation patterns, and the trends and variability in the environmental conditions of our seas (inshore and offshore), based on observations and models.  This research work has direct applications in aquaculture, fisheries, conservation, and marine renewable energy.  We also carry out research (especially modelling) on aspects of oil spill preparedness, both in the deep waters off the Scottish continental shelf and on the shelf seas.  Traditionally, my own research has focused on biological and bio-physical modelling of, primarily, the early-life stages of fish but also zooplankton. I have done research into the mechanisms that control growth and survival of these organisms, the population dynamics of the plankton community in general, and transport and connectivity patterns between populations and areas.  A lot of the applied work carried out by the Oceanography Group focuses on transport and connectivity (of organisms, pollutants, diseases, etc.).

External collaborations and projects

I collaborate with scientists across Scotland, the UK, Europe and beyond, in particular with colleagues involved in the following external projects, activities and groups:

  • INTERREG-funded COMPASS (investigating connectivity for priority species and conservation areas between Ireland and Scotland) and MyCOAST (co-ordinating and developing marine observatories within the Atlantic Area).
  • Evaluating the Environmental Conditions Required for the Development of Offshore Aquaculture (OFF-AQUA), funded by BBSRC-NERC, investigating the risks and opportunities of moving aquaculture developments further offshore.
  • (Relatively recently completed) TeraWatt and EcoWatt2050: EPSRC-funded projects investigating Marine Renewable Energy resources and the potential effect of marine renewable energy (MRE) developments on the marine environment, largely using modelling tools. There are some other MRE-related initiatives I am currently involved in (e.g. a DST-UKIERI project on sustainable MRE developments in India).
  • AlterECO: a NERC-funded project investigating the use of marine autonomous technologies for research and monitoring (e.g. for MSFD) in UK shelf seas.
  • Member of the Executive Committee of the National Partnership for Ocean Prediction (NPOP), a partnership focused on marine analysis and prediction through the integration of numerical models and observations.
  • Vice-Chair of the UK Integrated Marine Observing Network (UK-IMON), a Partnership Initiative of the Marine Science Co-ordination Committee.
  • MASTS (http://www.masts.ac.uk): a pooling initiative bringing together marine researchers from around Scotland, where I am the convenor of the Dynamics & Properties of Marine Systems Theme, and have played a significant role in a number of activities (e.g. workshops) sponsored by the Theme.
  • Honorary Lecturer, School of Biological Sciences, University of Aberdeen.
  • Co-supervision of students with academic partners. Currently one PhD in collaboration with the University of Stratchclyde and the University of Aberden co-funded by MASTS and The Data Lab.

External Committees and Responsibilities

I am the vice-chair of UK-IMON, Leader of the Dynamics and Properties of Marine Systems Theme within MASTS (Marine Alliance for Science and Technology for Scotland) and a member of the Executive Committee of NPOP.  I am also a member of the ICES Working Group on Integrative, Physical-biological and Ecosystem Modelling (WGIPEM) and participate in the Oil & Gas UK Oil Spill Response Technical Work Group.  I am a Contributing Editor of Marine Ecology Progress Series and have extensive experience as a reviewer for over 20 different scientific journals and some 10 funding agencies, including NERC (UK), NSF (US), the Swedish Research Council Formas, the European Commission and the Research Council of Norway (at least annually since before 2000).

Education

  • BSc in (Marine) Zoology, Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.

  • MSc in Fisheries Biology and Management, University of Wales, Bangor.

  • PhD, Imperial College London.

  • Diploma of Imperial College, Imperial College London.
