Kim is a PhD student at the Institute of Environmental Science and Technology (ICTA) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona (http://ictaweb.uab.cat). As part of the BIGSEA project led by Eric Galbraith, she is investigating large-scale features of the global fishery using the BiOeconomic mArine Trophic Size-spectrum model (BOATS). Kim works on improving the representation of humans in the model, which includes incorporating behavioural responses to overfishing, fundamental fleet dynamics, and the time humans spend fishing.
Here in Tassie Kim is working with Ingrid van Putten, Beth Fulton, Camilla Novaglio, Julia Blanchard, Yannick Rousseau and Reg Watson from CMS on categorising global fisheries and on formulating likely drivers of the development of the global fishing fleet.
Visiting dates: 8th Feb to 1st April 2018.
