Research expertise

My background is in evolutionary and population genetics, and the application of genetic tools to understanding species’ ecology and evolution and, in particular, how this information can be applied to conservation and management. In 2009, I moved from Canada to Scotland to take a position with the Rivers and Fisheries Trusts of Scotland (RAFTS) on a project entitled “Focusing Atlantic Salmon Management On Populations” (FASMOP), collaborating with Marine Scotland Science and the various Fishery Trusts and Boards to inform salmon management. During this time, I was also involved with the EU SALSEA-MERGE project, aimed at establishing a trans-European genetic baseline for Atlantic salmon and led the genetics work on the “Managing Interactions Aquaculture Project” (MIAP). In August 2014, I joined the Rivers and Lochs Institute at Inverness College UHI focusing on the use of genomics in aquatic biodiversity management.
