Who are we?

We are a collaboration of scientists from different Institutes (Marine Institute) and Universities (University College Cork, University of Glasgow and Queens Belfast) working together to answer a number of important ecological and evolutionary questions in freshwater and marine ecosystems.



Some of us have worked together in previous studies such as, the Beaufort Marine Research Award in Fish Population Genetics.

Our scientific backgrounds are vast and varied and include expertise in fish ecology, genetics, evolution, freshwater catchments and the marine environment.  We are once again combining our expertise on an array of new and exciting projects.  These projects are funded by Science Foundation Ireland, the European Research Council, the Marine Research Programme and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council.
