Area of Experise: Ecosystem Modeller

Summary of experience | Dr Scott is an ecosystem modeller with experience researching methods for natural resource management. Finlay has experience of modelling fisheries systems, including management and biology, focussing on understanding how uncertainty may be managed through risk based approaches. He is also interested in how life history traits may determine the responsiveness of organisms to environmental disturbance and the impact of density dependence.

Role in OPEC | In the OPEC project Finlay will be linking size-based models of the higher trophic marine ecosystem with lower trophic models. This will investigate the relationship between the trophic levels, particularly how changes in the lower trophic levels drive the dynamics of fish assemblages.
