Dr. Susan Kay is a scientist in the modelling group at PML. Her work involves setting up and running hydrodynamic-ecosystem models which can be used to investigate the possible impacts of climate change on the marine environment. She joined PML in 2011, and prior to this did a PhD in ocean colour remote sensing. At PML Susan has worked on projects about the future for fisheries and aquaculture with partners in Bangladesh, India, Ghana and Europe. She also works at the UK Met Office, leading the marine biogeochemistry team. Her research focusses on the use of models to provide environmental information which can inform sustainable management of marine ecosystems.
In Blue Communities Dr Kay is working in project 10, Future Scenarios of Changes in Resource. She has run a model to project 21st century change in the marine environment under two scenarios of climate change, shared the outputs and run training in their use. Now she is working with partners to apply the model outputs to their own studies and co-write papers.
