I am a Research Scientist at the Centre for Fisheries Ecosystem Research (CFER) at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University in Newfoundland. My research focuses on answering macro-scale ecological questions in fisheries, and how those questions can be addressed in ways that can be used to improve advice for ecosystem-based fisheries management.
Matthew lectures in the Fisheries Science Graduate Program – he teaches ‘Statistics and Study Design for Fisheries Science’.
I am a 2023 graduate of Memorial University where I received my PhD in Fisheries Science. My PhD research focused on assessing the differential recovery trajectories of flatfish on the Grand Bank. Prior to attending Memorial University I graduated from Louisiana State University with an MSc in Oceanography and from Dalhousie University, where I received a BSc with Honours in Marine Biology.
