About Adam

Visiting Researcher - applied Marine Ecosystems Research (aMER):

Researcher - Blue Marine Foundation:
I am a marine ecologist undertaking research focussed on the impacts of various anthropogenic activities on protected marine habitats. My primary focus is fisheries, having been involved with the Lyme Bay reef recovery monitoring since 2010. I have also contributed to research on the impacts of marine renewable installations and marine litter. I completed my PhD which assessed the ecosystem impacts of commercial potting on both reef habitats the associated commercial fishery, within the Lyme Bay MPA. Currently, I am working as an assistant project manager at the University of Plymouth and as a consultant to the Blue Marine Foundation. I am coordinating research projects across multiple study sites throughout the UK, with the aim of providing conservation benefits and improving the sustainability of small-scale fisheries.
