Job Title: Professor
Employer: Simon Fraser University
Place of Birth: Bilston, West Midlands, England
High School attended: Bilston Grammar School
Further Education: Bath Univ, UK (B.Sc.), University of British Columbia (Ph.D.)
Geographic focus of research: Aquatic Research in general
Brief synopsis of current research:
Discovery of basic mechanisms that underlie cardiorespiratory physiology in fish and applying these finding where possible to better understand and manage the aquatic environment. A special interest of application has been sublethal toxicology assessments in fish and examining the ability of salmon to migrate to their spawning grounds when faced with stressful challenges.
