He remains a Professor in the University’s School of Biology, having established the Scottish Oceans Institute (SOI) as a multidisciplinary research centre at St Andrews, and is a former Director of the NERC Sea Mammal Research Unit (SMRU). His research specialty is the behavioural dynamics of marine predators, the management of marine ecosystems, and ecological economics.
