Post Doctoral Fellow, University of Tasmania

During my postgraduate studies, in quantitative marine science (fisheries oceanography), my focus was on temperate and tropical pelagic predators and associated systems. Presently, as an early career postgraduate fellow, I am engaged in research informing the management of the species and ecosystems impacted by benthic fisheries in the Southern Ocean.
