Marine Ecophysiologist

Faculty and Department

  • Faculty of Science and Engineering
  • School of Environmental Sciences

Summary

Katie leads working groups in both EU and Research Council-funded projects related to the marine environment, climate change and aquaculture. Experienced in ecotoxicology and ecophysiology, and risk assessment and risk management, her work focuses on how natural and anthropogenic environmental change affects marine organisms and the marine environment. Katie is interested in shellfish fisheries and aquaculture, and works with local industries in these areas, exploring ways to improve production and success. She is skilled in project management, budgeting, statistical and data analysis, and supervises both undergraduate and postgraduate level students.
