I am a marine macroecologist with broad interests in describing and understanding large-scale patterns in the distribution and abundance of life in the seas. I have been a Royal Society University Research Fellow since 2008, and lead the macroecology and ecoinformatics module of the Marine Ecosystems Research Programme.
I am a postdoctoral researcher working with the Marine Ecosystems Research Programme (MERP). I use quantitative tools to test macroecological hypotheses describing the functioning of complex, large-scale ecological systems. Within MERP I also take part in the collecting and formatting of data sets.
I am a PhD student studying variation in deep-sea fish communities over space and time. I have a particular interest in how certain aspects of assemblages change along the depth gradient of the continental slope, including morphological traits, diversity metrics, and size-based indicators. I have explored novel ways of applying trait-based and macroecological methods to the deep sea.
I am a PhD student studying how changes in environmental variation will affect macroecological patterns of diversity in marine and terrestrial ecosystems. I am particularly interested in how temporal and spatial mismatches in resource availability and consumer need will be amplified up the food web, and if correlations exist in the responses of marine and terrestrial populations.
I am a Masters student investigating the distribution of marine biodiversity around the UK. In particular, I am interested in identifying hotspots of biodiversity, and understanding congruence between different measures of diversity and taxonomic groups.
