MORSL postdoctoral researcher Sui Phang

February 28, 2014

Sui Phang recently joined our MORSL laboratory as a postdoctoral researcher. He will be working with Ian Hamilton on studying and modeling the fish populations in the Logone Floodplain. His primary field of research is to improve understanding of natural and anthropogenic perturbations and feedbacks on living resources for better management. He is particularly interested in improving the management of socio-economically important fish stocks by using new and more robust population models. For his doctoral research at Bournemouth University in the UK, he developed an individual-based model of salmonids in the River Frome chalk stream in southern England to assess current and advise future conservation and recreational fishing management. His future aims are to first understand the nature of social elements in fishery management and appreciate their important interactions in decisions and program effectiveness to develop site-specific fishery management programmes that account for both social and natural elements.
