Senior Scientist (Europe)
Lindsay’s career has focused on developing her research science skills alongside her project management skills. She has worked on the foraging ecology and population dynamics of NW Atlantic and NE Pacific pinnipeds and the sound production of some of their preferred prey; gadoid fish. She delivered the field and lab data for the Scottish Government commissioned (2010) research into the diet of harbour seals and grey seals in Scottish waters and presented the harbour seal research as her PhD thesis in 2014. Stepping outside of science to increase the breadth of her business skills Lindsay has helped deliver reducing bureaucracy projects at the Home Office as well as grow the business of a small micro-brewery based in St. Andrews.
Lindsay is working primarily on our PCOD efforts. In particular working on developing a decision framework that can be used to prioritize the development of PCoD models for different marine mammal populations exposed to the same source of disturbance. This framework will also be suitable for providing advice on the most appropriate form of PCoD model for these populations, based on likely data availability and model sensitivity!
