Summary of D.Phil/MSc research

I focussed on coral reef ecology in the zoology department. I tried my hand at a mixture of fieldwork, experimental studies, and modelling of mesophotic coral ecosystems.

Current Research/employment

I create marine ecosystem models for different regions to investigate the effects of climate change and fishing on food webs and fisheries sustainability.

Was your D.Phil relevant to what you are doing now?

Yes, it gave me the training I needed in modelling.
