Neil originally hails from Northumberland in the UK, but has lived and worked as a marine ecologist in southeast Asia and beyond for the past 25 years. Neil works with a range of collaborators to understand how mobile organisms utilize often heavily impacted coastal habitats such as those found in Singapore.  Having worked with NGOs, Government and in fishing communities, he also works to inform a range of stakeholders in areas of marine management and conservation.

Dr Neil's current projects include:

  • Examining the ecology and movement patterns of mesopredators, including Bamboo Sharks (Chiloscyllium spp.) Singapore https://www.cmesl.org/sharks

  • Understanding the value of intertidal seagrass and mangrove habitats to fish in SIngapore

  • Capacity building workshops for shark and rays scientists and conservation practitioners in SE Asia

  • Exploring recreational fishing activity in Singapore waters

  • Collaborating with industry to understand how mobile technology could be used as an incentive for sustainable fishing practices
