“I am looking for both PhDs as well as postdocs to work in my new lab at UWA on Sea Around Us projects focusing on fisheries and marine conservation for the Indian Ocean, and globally. My lab undertakes big data science on an ocean-basin and global scale. This will also involve collaborations with two major research partners, the Sea Around Us team at the University of British Columbia under the lead of Prof. Daniel Pauly and the Marine Futures Lab of Prof. Jessica Meeuwig at UWA. I also have established collaborations with the Walk Free Foundation, which is home to the Global Slavery Index, and which is also supported by the same donor.”
