Information: Brad joined the Coastal Fisheries Science and Management Section of SPC in April 2012. In his current role, Brad is responsible for the provision of capacity development and scientific advice to Pacific Island countries to better inform management on issues relating to the status of coastal fisheries resources and habitats, including quantitative coral reef health monitoring, in-water finfish and invertebrate assessments, market and creel survey programs, assessments of demographic parameters and population connectivity of fishes, and ciguatera monitoring.

Brad holds a PhD from James Cook University (2012) and a BSc (Hons) in Marine Biology and Zoology from the University of Queensland (2002). His doctoral work focused on population biology and connectivity of polynemid fishes across northern Australia. He continues to have a strong research focus on the population biology and connectivity of tropical fishes, and how these may be affected by anthropogenic influences such as fishing, habitat degradation and climate change. Prior to joining the Coastal Fisheries Program at SPC, Brad worked at the University of Queensland and for an environmental consultancy where he was involved in assessment and monitoring programs across Queensland, New South Wales and the western Pacific.
