I am originally from the UK, where I studied Oceanography with Marine Biology (BSc Hons). I moved to Townsville in 2002 and completed a MAppSci in Tropical Marine Ecology at James Cook University. I spent a number of years doing field research and teaching field techniques in association with the Marine Park Authority in the Seychelles, and teaching college level courses in marine biology and oceanography in the Caribbean. In 2009 I returned to Australia, completing a a PhD at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University.  My thesis looked at the scales at which fish are functioning on the reef and how this contributes to resilience.  I completed a one year post-doc at the Centre exploring management of data poor fisheries and the spatial ecology of reef fishes.  I am currently a research fellow at the Centre for Marine Socioecology, Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, University Tasmania exploring large scale trends in the functional composition of fish communities.
