Vincent is an ecologist with a broad interest in how ecological processes can be used to achieve better conservation and management of threatened communities. As an expert with the use of stable isotopes as an ecological tool, he has used novel approaches to examine ecological interactions from species to ecosystems. Vincent has strong interests in fisheries management, with a particular focus on sharks and rays. He strives to develop novel methodologies to answer or improve on numerous research issues using cutting-edge techniques including drones.
Vincent has worked in a variety of environments, from terrestrial aquaria to coral reefs to remote seas in Tasmania. At the Blue Carbon Lab, he is helping with the Blue Carbon environmental accounting project, bringing together my expertise in fisheries and building ecosystem accounts.
