About

Biography

I completed an undergraduate degree in Marine Biology at the University of Aberdeen followed by a PhD investigating the molecular basis of parr-smolt transformation in Atlantic salmon. I next spent time as a post-doc studying tRNA charging in E.coli and yeast using microarray technology at the Institute of Medical Sciences before moving to the Rowett Institute to study epigenetics in relation to adult cognition and mood.

In my current position at the School of Biological Sciences I am involved in two projects at present;

Robust Smolt - The impact of early life history in freshwater recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS) on Atlantic salmon robustness and susceptibility to disease at sea, with a particular focus on the microbiome.

Nosiefish - The impact of alternative oils in feed on Atlantic salmon inflammatory responses.
