I joined the MFRC in 2017 as a postdoctoral researcher on the Unlocking the Archive Project where I used statistical modelling approaches to examine biological and environmental data time series. I am currently working on the ClimFish project which is investigating impacts of climate change on Irish fish stocks. I hold a BSc (Hons) in Applied Ecology from University College Cork (graduated 2003). I completed my Masters of Research (2004) and PhD (Title: Trophic Modelling of the Lough Neagh Ecosystem, Northern Ireland) at the University of Ulster in Coleraine, Northern Ireland (2005 – 2009). I completed a postdoctoral role at the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute in Belfast developing ecological management tools for freshwater lakes (2011-2014). My research interests lie in fisheries, freshwater systems, environmental monitoring and the use of novel statistical techniques to examine ecological systems.
