Dr. Kent Smedbol (Marine Population Dynamics)

Dr. Smedbol received his B.Sc. in Biology from Dalhousie University 1991, and his M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Marine Ecology from Memorial University in 1994 and 1999. His doctoral work involved an analysis of subpopulation spatial structure of Newfoundland 's northern cod from a metapopulation perspective. Next, Dr. Smedbol held an NSERC Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Oceanography Department at Dalhousie, where his research focussed on the applicability of metapopulation theory to wide-ranging marine populations. Currently, Dr. Smedbol is a Research Scientist with Fisheries and Oceans Canada, and is a member of the Species at Risk (SAR) group at the Biological Station, in St. Andrews , NB. His work is 3-fold, and includes research on at-risk marine species (e.g. right whale), evaluation of potentially at-risk populations, and basic and applied research concerning conservation (SAR) issues. More information concerning the research activities of the Species at Risk Group can found on the Group's website.
