Qualifications and Background

Coming from Ireland, the importance of sustainable fisheries management is no stranger to me. Having completed a distancion in Aquaculture that led me to a Hons Degree in Freshwater & Marine Biology in GMIT, I worked with organisations such as Inland Fisheries Ireland doing stock assessments and the Marine Institute Ireland as a fisheries assessment technician. I then spent some time working commercially in the Irish fishing fleet. I am hoping observing will help me achieve the experience I need to be a fisheries scientist so I jumped at this opportunity to work with the Falklands Islands fisheries Dept.

Research Interests

I am interested in stock assessments and growth in fin-fish and am hoping that observing will give me an opportunity to work in this area in the future.
