General Information

Roland Proud (@rolandproud) carries out research as part of the Pelagic Ecology Research Group (PERG) on the ecology and biology of zooplankton and micronekton that live in the open ocean (the pelagic realm). This relies on combinations of acoustic (scientific echosounders) and netting techniques to sample zooplankton/micronekton and gather data enabling to estimate their abundance and map their distribution.
