Research Interest

Working in the Fisheries Department as a Scientific Observer for two years piqued my interest in the complex life history of cephalopods. Having spent much time collecting data in the loligo fishery, I am now doing a PhD on the population connectivity of this species (Doryteuthis gahi) with the fisheries department and the University of Aberdeen. This primarily involves; statolith age analysis, elemental composition analysis using laser ablation inductively coupled mass spectrometry and geometric morphometric analysis.

Background & Qualifications

I completed a BSc in Marine Biology with Swansea University and an MSc in Oceanography with the University of Southampton.
