Details of specialism

With a background in oceanography and fisheries science, I joined the Marine Laboratory in early 2020. Generally, I am interested in fish biodiversity, with particular focus on demersal fish in the North Sea. My current research includes estimating maturity- and weight-at-age of North Shelf haddock (Melanogrammus aeglefinus) ready for the ICES (International Council for the Exploration of the Seas) Benchmark Meeting on Northern Haddock Stock (WKHAD) in 2022. Additionally, I am responsible for stock assessment of lemon sole (Microstomus kitt) in the North Sea as part of the ICES Working Group on the Assessment of Demersal Stocks in the North Sea and Skagerrak (WGNSSK) and scallops (Pecten maximus).
