Research Interests

I work in the Inshore Ecosystems group and my current research is mainly concerned with the stock assessments for Nephrops norvegicus and Pecten maximus. I also take responsibility for the maintenance and development of the inshore survey databases and respond to internal and external data queries. 


I collaborate with scientists across the UK, Europe and North America, notably those involved in the ICES WGCSE and WGScallop. I am a STEM ambassador and member of ScienceGrrl and actively support initiatives to encourage marine science in Aberdeen.

External Committees and Responsibilities

I have participated in a number of ICES assessment Working Groups and Study Groups and am responsible for collating the required information for official data calls for shellfish species. I provide advice to both the Scottish and UK governments in support of policy changes with regard to shellfish.
