Key Research Interests

I predominately work in Aquaculture and in particular study the interactions between nutrition, fish physiology and reproduction. In my current position I am verifying the reporductive potential of triploid Atlantic salmon and examining the differences in nutrient metabolism between tripoid and diploid farmed fish

In previous positions I have examined the biochemical pathway for endogenous synthesis of fatty acids in Arctic charr and the effect of welfare on energy metabolism pathways in pikeperch. I also have a strong interest in the drivers of phenotypic variation in fish populations and establishing functional links between genes and phenotypes.
