Dr Codling, jointly appointed between the University's Departments of Mathematical Sciences and Biological Sciences, was successful in the National Environment Research Council's new investigators competition, open to new academics that are within two years of their first appointment.
His grant will involve collaboration with Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science in Lowestoft, the Irish Marine Institute, and the International Council for the Exploration of the Seas.
Dr Codling explains: ‘Problems in fisheries management and the over-exploitation and collapse of European fish stocks is a key issue. A traditional approach to fisheries management is based on assessments that require enormous amounts of data. However, many fisheries have limited or unreliable data, so alternative assessment and management is required.'
'This project will develop an assessment framework that uses empirical fisheries indicators and statistical process control techniques as part of a long-term harvest control rule for the management of fisheries. The theoretical methods developed will also be suitable for managing other natural resources.’
In addition, Dr Codling's grant will pay for a postdoctorate to work in the Department of Biological Sciences at the University for a year.

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
