Lindsay has spent the last 20 years in Asia working on species as diverse as largest of our oceans inhabitants, the blue whale, to one of the smallest, most elusive species, the finless porpoise. With a particular interest in inshore tropical delphinids, a lot of Lindsay’s work has focused on how these often localised populations interact and react to man and his activities.  Lindsay sits on several regional and global policy and advisory boards which focus on the protection and conservation of marine mammals.

Lindsay has spent the last 20 years in Asia and runs all SMRU Asia Pacific projects. With a particular interest in inshore tropical delphinids, Lindsay has conducted many projects which focus on how these often localised populations interact and react to man and his activities.

In particular, Lindsay has looked at managing marine mammal populations in compromised environments and her PhD focused on the ecology of the Hong Kong Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins and the impact of major marine reclamation works within the populations core habitat. With extensive experience at both NGO and government level, Lindsay sits on several regional advisory committees and is the focal point of several collaborative research projects within the South East Asian region.
