Stephen Beville (MSc, London School of Economics)
Stephen’s PhD is centred on employing discrete choice methods to investigate how angler’s fishery site choices are affected by factors such as Didymo infestation, riparian margin erosion due to stock, changes in water visibility, angler congestion,  fish size, catch rates, bag limits, travel times and cost.  Stephen is especially interested in linking recreational specialisation theory to choice methods in order to test some of theoretical assertions of recreational specialisation theory in addition to illustrating how extensions to the Random Parameters Logit model may be used to improve understanding of angler behaviour.

Mohammad Daradkeh (MSc,Yarmouk University, Jordan)
The goal of this doctoral research, “Interactive Visualisation Techniques for Exploring Model Sensitivity”, is to develop interactive visualization techniques to help decision makers explore model sensitivity to simultaneous variations of input variables taking into account the interaction between input variables as well as the impact of different sources of uncertainty on the overall uncertainty in model output. Models on which this will be tested include some from the fisheries and aquaculture theme.
