Overview

I am an evolutionary biologist with interests in aquatic biogeography, population genetics, genomics, and fisheries and aquaculture science. I am particularly interested in the application of such data as evidence to inform decisions by conservation managers and policy.

I am currently working as a postdoc supervised by Eduarda Santos and Jamie Stevens on the BBSRC/NERC AquaLeap project: Innovation in Genetics and Breeding to Advance UK Aquaculture Production.
