MMO welcomes Aberdeen academic as first NERC fellow

The Marine Management Organisation (MMO) has welcomed a University of Aberdeen Research Fellow as one of its first Natural Environmental Research Council (NERC) Fellows to support its work in improving access to marine science.

Dr Jacqui Tweddle from the University of Aberdeen and Dr Katherine Yates from the University of Salford have started in the role of Knowledge Exchange Fellow, helping the MMO to deliver key elements of its Evidence Strategy.

Dr Tweddle’s three year fellowship will focus on the use of science in decision making and marine management, encouraging greater knowledge exchange around marine research.

As part of her fellowship, Dr Tweddle is arranging a visit to the University by the MMO. If you would like more information on this, or to register to come along, please see here.
