Marine ecology and sustainable aquaculture
My research is mostly concerned with understanding and minimising human impacts on the coastal marine environment, especially topics are around (1) maintaining biodiversity under pressure from fishing, poor water quality and invasive species, and (2) guiding responsible expansion of marine aquaculture as a source of sustainable food for the global population. I primarily work within Prof Tim Dempster's sustainable aquaculture lab (SALTT).
