Dr Christopher Lynam

Principal Scientist

Christopher is a scientist researching ecosystems and giving advice on biodiversity and management. Christopher leads indicator development for fish biodiversity and foodwebs to support assessments made by OSPAR, UK Marine Strategy, and Defra’s 25 Year Environment Plan - Outcome Indicator Framework. Christopher works on a range on UK and European projects using statistical analyses and modelling (including Ecopath with Ecosim and Ecospace) to understand the implications of climate change and management of human activities on marine ecosystems from the seabed to apex predators. Christopher’s research has focused on the interplay between climate change, fisheries management, marine protected areas, the decommissioning of oil and gas infrastructure, the generation of renewable energy and the cumulative impacts of these pressures on marine ecosystems.
