Dr Tom Jenkins

Postdoctoral Research Associate



I am a research scientist with interests in aquatic ecology, environmental biology and conservation genetics. I am particularly interested in the application of such data as evidence to inform decisions by conservation managers and policy.

Update: On Feb 1st 2021 I started a new job at Natural England.

At Exeter, I worked as a postdoc supervised by Eduarda Santos and Jamie Stevens on the BBSRC/NERC AquaLeap lobster project: Innovation in Genetics and Breeding to Advance UK Aquaculture Production.
