FOL welcomes Alex to the team

Dr. Tidd joins the ERC-CLOCK project to work on fisheries adaptaion to climate chnage

05/04/2019 -

After a competitive selection process for the postdoctoral position on econometrics social-ecological science, Alexander Tidd has succeeded and has joined the CLOCK project and FOL team this March 2019.

Alex has over 18 years experience in quantitative fisheries research, where he has developed bio-economic models to find optimal management regulations in fisheries and worked on estimates of the current and future status of fish stocks through statistical population models and stock assessments. After developing his PhD on fleet dynamics in Imperial College London, his research has resulted in a number of publications in in top fisheries and environmental management journals. He also has experience in management evaluations by comparing the expected effects of alternative management procedures.  Alex has a broad international experience  having worked for the Pacific Community (SPC) in New Caledonia on the largest tuna fishery in the world, The University of Tasmania (UTAS) as a fleet dynamics researcher, and the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) in Ireland on European data limited species. This broad experience will surely contribute very positively to reach the objectives of CLOCK.

During the next two years as a postdoctoral researcher, Alex will be responsible for conducting global and regional assessments of fisheries to better understand the interlinks between climate change impacts, management and adaptation. This research together with his field experience and his great skills in the development of stakeholder interactive tools will greatly contribute to FOL mission and the best possible outcome for CLOCK.

We are delighted to have Alex as new member of FOL and can’t wait to work with him. Welcome Alex!
