Professor of Marine Biodiversity, Liverpool John Moores University

I am a marine ecologist and population geneticist, working primarily on fish (of which, I think these guys are the best). I occasionally venture into the non-scaly world of crustaceans, molluscs and even mammals!

My main research interests include i) the application of population genetics for the identification of management and conservation units; ii) the use of DNA barcoding and metabarcoding to explore and assess biodiversity; iii) the biological and socioeconomic drivers of seafood consumption; iv) the evolution of sex change in fish and its consequences for fisheries.
