    Dr. Tunde Adebola is a fish ecologist who studies anthropogenic impacts on coastal ecosystems using ecosystem fisheries management approaches. He has a Bachelor of Science in Fisheries from Lagos State University, Nigeria and a Master of Science in Marine Estuarine and Environmental Science from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore, USA. He obtained his doctoral degree in Environmental Science and Public Policy from George Mason University, where he developed an Ecopath with Ecosim model and with this model examined the ecosystem consequences of spatial redistribution of fishing effort in nearshore waters of the Nigerian coastal system. He has published several papers from this work. After his graduation he held a postdoctoral research fellowship at Hampton University (HU) Minority Men’s Health Institute and served as instructor for Biology courses in the Biology Department. Tunde has recently accepted a Research Faculty position at Hampton University’s Marine Science Program.
