My role as a project support officer with the applied Marine Ecosystems Research (aMER) unit, involves assisting with research into the efficacy of Marine Protected Areas (MPAs). The research uses TUVs (towed underwater video) and BRUVs (baited remote underwater video) to document and quantify the recovery of sessile and mobile species after MPA establishment.
I am particularly interested in the spatial ecology of elasmobranchs and the potential conservation benefits afforded by MPAs. Through my ongoing master's research I've been able to explore the effect of Lyme Bay MPA on elasmobranch populations whilst developing novel pelagic baited video techniques for surveying pelagic elasmobranchs and other apex predators.
