Research Interests

My current research is mainly concerned with understanding fish population structuring, fish movements and undertaking age/growth studies. The tools for these studies include fish tagging, otolith microstructure analysis, otolith shape analysis and the use of whole solution and laser ablation ICPMS to measure trace element concentrations in otoliths. My current work is in support of the Scottish Marine Protected Areas (ecological and socio-economic impacts of spatial management measures) and PICMATOPS (pelagic foodweb modelling to predict the impact of climate change on marine top predators) projects.

Collaborations

I collaborate with scientists working in similar fields across the UK, Europe and Norway. I have worked on several European-funded projects, including:

  • FIE & FINE (Fisheries induced evolution)
  • UNCOVER (Understanding the mechanisms of stock recovery)
  • SUNFISH (Sustainable fisheries, climate change and the North Sea ecosystem)
  • CODYSSEY (Cod spatial dynamics)
  • METACOD (The role of sub-stock structure in the maintainance of cod metapopulations)
  • IBACS (Integrated approach to the biological basis of age estimation in commercially important fish species)
