Personal profile

Research Interests:

My research group, the Fisheries Ecosystem and Advanced Survey Technologies (FEAST), focuses on the sustainable management of marine resources, particularly fish, with other interests in marine ecology. 

Our specific research interests are as follows:

  • Determining the abundance and distribution of fish and other marine fauna, and improving the accuracy and precision of the associated methods
  • Marine ecosystem modelling
  • Effective sustainable management of marine resources
  • The biology and ecology of commercially exploited fish and other marine fauna

Specific areas of expertise are as follows:

  • Fisheries acoustics (the use of echosounders and other sonar equipment for studying marine life)
  • Advances in technology for sampling of marine life (video, net, passive & active acoustics)
  • Fish stock assessment
  • Sampling (survey) statistics, particularly geostatistics
  • Ecosystem modelling

The world's fishery resources provide a rich and healthy food source, economic benefits (income generation and employment in rural areas) and cultural value.  It is important to study these resources and the ecosystems they inhabit, to ensure that they are managed sustainably - something that we will all benefit from in the future.
