Dr. Tyler Eddy
Research Scientist
Research Areas:
Marine Ecology, Fisheries, Climate Change

Dr. Tyler Eddy is a research scientist interested in past, present, and future human interactions with, and ecology of, marine ecosystems. He has experience in ecosystem modelling, marine conservation, historical ecology, and underwater research. Dr. Eddy is a founding coordinator of the fisheries and marine ecosystem model intercomparison project (FishMIP).

Dr. Eddy was a postdoctoral fellow at Dalhousie University, a Nereus Program research associate at the University of British Columbia, and a Nereus Program research fellow at the University of South Carolina. Dr. Eddy received his Doctor of Philosophy in Marine Biology from the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand and an Honours Bachelor of Science in Marine Biology from Dalhousie University, Canada.

Dr. Eddy is currently supervising students in MSc and PhD programs. To inquire about opportunities, please contact Dr. Eddy directly with your CV.
