Dr Martin Collins

Senior Research Fellow

Originally from Liverpool, Martin first came to the Falklands as a fisheries observer in 1990, but left after a year to undertake a PhD investigating the ecology of squid around the Irish Coast. After completing his PhD Martin worked at Aberdeen University, researching deep-sea fish ecology and lecturing. In 2002, after seven years in Aberdeen, Martin moved to the British Antarctic Survey to work on the ecology of Southern Ocean nekton (fish and squid). In May 2009 Martin moved to the Falklands to take up a post as Director of Fisheries and Chief Executive for South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.
