I am currently the director of the Bimini Biological Field Station. Please follow the above link for more information about getting involved with our conservation, education and research efforts.
I have a real passion for understanding more about the behavioural ecology of sharks. In particular, the functions and mechanisms of group formation in sharks and examining the role that learning plays in behavioural processes, such as finding food / mates or avoiding predators.
Previously, I completed my PhD on the 'Social organisation and behaviour of juvenile lemon sharks' conducting my field research at BBFS (2006-2009). I also recently finished a post doctoral research position with Dr. Culum Brown at Macquarie University in Sydney Australia (Oct 2011). This project assessed the learning and memory capacity of Port Jackson sharks.
