Information: Alex joined SPC’s OFP in April 2014 in the Scicofish Fisheries scientist – Bio-economic modelling position. Prior to this Alex was a fisheries scientist - higher scientific officer with over 14 years’ experience working at the Centre for the environment, fisheries and aquaculture Science (Cefas) in Lowestoft in the UK. He has over 10 years of scientific research conducted within a variety of European Commission and UK government funded research projects. He has gained extensive experience in data collection, fishery survey design, analysis of large datasets and development of innovative approaches to management including fisheries statistical ecological and economic modelling. After securing his PhD in 2013 on fleet dynamics and fisher behaviour from Imperial College London, he has wider interest in linking these processes to aquatic ecosystems. Some of the recent highlights of his work include evaluating fisher decision-making to understand how they respond to management. He is currently extending the scope of this work to investigate spatial use and interactions with other maritime sectors under a wide range of scenarios including climate change.
