Biography

Educational background:
BSc Biology at York with a project on coral reef ecology, PhD in biological oceanography at Trinity College Dublin

Employment
Universities of Southampton, Liverpool and Queen's University of Belfast. Joined NUI Galway in 2008

Interests focus on marine ecology, including spatial ecology, ecological modelling, population and community ecology. Applications to conservation, fisheries, aquaculture and monitoring.

Research Interests

I am a marine ecologist with a particular interest in spatial ecology. I use experiments, survey, computer simulation and data analysis to understand patterns of population abundance and assemblage composition.  My experience includes both benthic and pelagic ecology. The different approaches can be applied to address questions in conservation, fisheries, introduced species, monitoring, environmental management and compliance to legislation.
