Biography

Research Areas

I am primarily interested in the evolution and ecology of cephalopods and other molluscs, particularly, but not limited to, the groups that have radiated in the Southern Ocean and the deep sea.  This research has highlighted connections between the world’s oceans, linked evolutionary radiations to climatic events (through dated phylogenies), and is helping us understand how Southern Ocean fauna survived the massive disturbances caused by Pliocene-Pleistocene glacial cycles.   As part of my studies on these topics I have participated in numerous cruises to the Antarctic and South Atlantic.  More recently I have been leading multidisciplinary cruises to the canyon systems on the Irish continental margin aboard RV Celtic Explorer.   Here I am particularly interested in poorly known (and taxonomically difficult!) taxa such as sponges, cnidarians and ascidians.

 

Professional Roles

President, Cephalopod International Advisory Council; Co-editor Journal of Natural History; Fellow and former Council Member of the Linnean Society; Co-ordinator IUCN red data list for Cephalopoda; Cephalopoda curator for Encyclopedia of Life (EoL); ICES working group member WGCEPH.
