Project Director
University of Southampton

Dr. Phillip Fenberg was the EU Marine Reserves Science Coordinator and the Project Director of the European version of the Science of Marine Reserves educational booklet. As part of this work, Phil led the research and production of the booklet, development of associated online case studies and animations, and conducted a regional meta-analysis aimed at investigating the effects of EU marine reserves and associated data gaps. Currently, he is a Lecturer in Marine Biology within Ocean and Earth Science, National Oceanography Centre Southampton at the University of Southampton. He is broadly interested in using integrative methods to bridge the gap between basic ecology and evolution research with conservation biology. He uses a diverse set of tools and data ranging from large scale field studies, population genetics, historical museum records, life history theory, meta-analyses and science communication to better understand and help mitigate the ecological and evolutionary consequences of human impacts on coastal marine species.
