Information: Robert joined SPC’s Oceanic Fisheries Programme in August 2014 as a fisheries scientist working on stock assessment. His main focus is on Management Strategy Evaluation modelling in support of harvest strategy development for tuna stocks in the western central Pacific Ocean. Robert joined SPC from the Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas) in the UK where he was a senior fisheries scientist. During his 15 years at Cefas he spent 3 years working in Italy as a bio-economic modeler at the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission (JRC). Robert has worked in a number of International fisheries fora including ICES, EU STECF, NAFO and CCAMLR and has chaired several ICES stock assessment working groups focusing specifically on demersal stocks in the northeast Atlantic and subsequently on the assessment of toothfish stocks in the South Atlantic and Antarctic. He has a BSc in Oceanography from the University of Plymouth and an MSc (Hons) in Computational Biology from the University of York. Key interests are the development and implementation of models to simulate the long-term impacts of uncertainty in stock biology and assessments on fisheries management, and the development of open source software for use by the wider scientific community.
