Morphology: the key to preventing biodiversity loss in data-poor environments
KAUST PI: Michael Berumen
Andrew Temple obtained his PhD from Newcastle University, UK in 2019. His research and consultancy work focusses on interactions between large marine vartebrates (marine mammals, sharks, rays, turtles, and large finfish) and anthropogenic impacts. He considers himself an interdisciplinary researcher with expertise in the fields of ecology, fisheries science, and socioeconomics. His long-term goal is to improve the impact of conservation science by transforming the discipline from a reactive science, responding to species feclines, into a proactive one. His research is fundamentally collaborative, as part of multi-disciplinary teams with academics, government researchers, policy makers, NGOs, and industry stakeholders.
