I am interested in tracking behaviour and energy use of fish both in the wild and under husbandry conditions, with particular reference to social interactions of fish and the identification of new methods to monitor stress. I am currently working with Atlantic cod, rainbow trout, European sea bass and European eel, with future studies focusing on other commercially important species including Atlantic salmon.
