Dr. Lizzie Tyler

Postdoctoral Fellow


Research Interests

Lizzie is studying the movements of adult reef fish within and between reefs in the Saudi Arabian Red Sea using acoustic tagging and receiver arrays. Her interests span marine community ecology and management, with a focus on coral reef fishes. She is particularly excited to be leading this project because she believes adult fish movement has important implications for the spatial management of coral reefs, both for fisheries and ecological functioning, as well as influencing the structure of fish communities across the ‘reef-scape’.

Her work to date includes assessing the effectiveness of marine reserves in Tanzania (Ph.D., Oxford University), applying the neutral theory to coral reef fish communities (Cambridge University), and linking life history traits to macroecological patterns in fish and invertebrates (Sheffield University).
