    Simon Jennings is a Chief Science Advisor at the Centre for 
    Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science (Cefas), Lowestoft. Through Cefas, he advises national and international bodies on marine environmental management, with a focus on issues relating to biodiversity and fishery-environment interactions. He is a former Chair of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea, Advisory Committee on Ecosystems. Simon is also active as a research scientist, and works with colleagues to understand the structure and function of marine systems, to assess human and environmental impacts on populations, communities and ecosystems and to develop and apply tools to support marine environmental and fisheries management. This research is not strongly tied to specific approaches, scales or systems and spans the continuum from fundamental to applied. Research outputs have led to new methods of marine monitoring, assessment and management. Simon also holds a Chair of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia, where he works for one day each week to develop and facilitate research collaborations between the University of East Anglia and Cefas; a contribution to the strategic alliance signed by these institutions in 2008.
