I am an aquatic ecologist. I lead the Pelagic Ecology Research Group (PERG) from the Scottish Oceans Institute. We conduct research on the ecology and behaviour of zooplankton and fish, the higher predators that feed on them and, increasingly, on links between lake fish abundance and human health. We are seeking to understand how natural and climate-related variability impact fish and zooplankton, and consequences that change in the fish and zooplankton have for natural predators (e.g. penguins, seals and whales), fisheries, food security and human health.
