Research Interests



Paul gained his PhD at the University of Otago, New Zealand, studying the deep-benthic community ecology in New Zealand's fjords, and has held a Post Doctoral Fellowship at the University of California San Diego, where he studied seamount community ecology and oceanography. Paul has a general interest in marine benthic communities and has published across a wide range of topics including sea urchin reproductive ecology, drivers of community diversity, deep-sea coral predictive distribution modelling, and history of deep-sea research. Paul is also interested in the shallow marine ecology of and participate in activities the Shallow Marine Surveys Group.



Background and Qualifications



In his current position Paul is responsible for the biology, fisheries monitoring and assessment of the Patagonian toothfish (Dissostichus eleginoides) red cod (Salilota australis) and kingclip fisheries in the Falkland Islands. Paul is also responsible for inshore fisheries which include the Falklands mullet (Eleginops maclivinus), false kingcrab (Paralomis granulosa) and sea urchin (Loxechinus albus).
