Noyan’s primarily research centres on long term trends in estuarine and marine pelagic ecosystems, particularly on anthropogenic impacts and trophic cascades caused by introduced species. His other scientific interests involve extensive application of scientific diving including coral translocation due to anthropogenic disturbance, large scale biodiversity assessment surveys, habitat mapping of Posidonia oceanica meadows, oil spill and wreck removal impacts on coastal ecosystems and underwater experimental setups questioning settlement of jellyfish polyps. He is highly experienced in oceanographic sampling with a significant time spend onboard research vessels, including two expeditions to Antarctica.
