I am a researcher in the Centre for Applied Marine Sciences (CAMS) at Bangor University, with a background in temperate and tropical marine aquaculture research.   I completed a BSc (Hons) in Marine Biology in 2002, followed by an MSc in Shellfish Biology, Fisheries and Aquaculture in 2004, both at the University of Wales, Bangor.  I undertook my PhD in apects of bivalve culture, development and behaviour between 2010 and 2015 at Bangor University.

I have worked in CAMS since 2004 on a number of research projects focused on larval and juvenile culture techniques, larval nutrition and larval development in bivalves, crustaceans and fish.  This has involved working as part of projects across collaborating international institutions, as well as with industrial partners.  Recent work has focused on; (1) developing techniques and systems for coral reef fish and invertebrate aquaculture to provide a sustainable source and alternative to wild collection for the marine aquarium, and (2) developing reliable and sustainable sources of mussel seed for the mussel industry, to alleviate the pressures associated with the supply from increasingly unreliable wild stocks.

Particular areas of interest include sustainable aquaculture and resource management; coral reef aquaculture and the development of culture techniques for coral reef fish and invertebrate species important to the ornamental aquarium trade; shellfish aquaculture, including hatchery production, development of culture techniques, diet formulation, larval and post-larval development, and wild collection strategies; development of planktonic live feeds for aquaculture.
