Conceptual and Applied Approaches to Marine Invasions: Indo-Pacific Lionfish as a Model System
Dr. Smith has 10 years of experience researching various aspects of biological invasions, coral reef ecology, and data-limited fisheries. She had published several studies on the Indo-Pacific lionfish invasion of the Caribbean and on unreported fisheries catches, particularly in the tropics. She has received numerous awards, including the Bullitt Environmental Prize, a graduate scholarship from the Organization of American States, and a professional development scholarship from the Society for Conservation Biology, Latin America and Caribbean Section. Nicola headed two Global Environment Facility/United Nations Environment Programme (GEF/UNEP) funded projects on invasive species. Her first project involved creating a series of pilot experiments to control invasive, Indo-Pacific lionfish in coastal waters of The Bahamas. Nicola's current project involves conducting a risk assessment of potential marine invasive species for Barbados and the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States.
