Lecturer in Fisheries Studies
My PhD research focused on disease in Norway lobster and I also hold an MRes in Applied Fish Biology and a BSc (Hons) in Fisheries Science. From my initial research into fish diseases at Cefas to my post-doctoral studies, I have over ten years’ experience of studying the ecology, physiology and diseases of fish and crustaceans. My study species have included salmon, brown trout, carp and lobsters and my work has involved partnerships with a range of industries and organisations.
My recent projects range from testing experimental fishing gears and how these affect commercial catches to a designing a survey of Scottish inshore fish populations. I’m looking forward to developing my work in aquaculture nutrition and supervising and supporting my students in their diverse research interests.
